36th Division in World War II

HILLS OF TUSCANY

The race was hitting its stride. Troops were motorized, walking only when small, straggling groups of German rear-guards interfered. Even the fiercest of these battles lasted only a short time. To the men of the 36th this type of war was new, quite in contrast to previous snail-like, painstaking mountain operations.
