Longshore Soldiers: Life in a World War II Port Battalion

by Andrew Brozyna
Through firsthand accounts, historical photographs, and original maps, Longshore Soldiers recounts the wartime experiences of Cortland Hopkins and ten other port battalion veterans. As part of the US Army's Transportation Corps, they were responsible for ensuring that thousands of tons of military supplies were packed, unloaded, and delivered to the front lines. Moving from training stateside, to supply operations on the beaches of Normandy, to dock work in the massive, high-risk seaport of Antwerp, Belgium, and finally to deactivation, Brozyna offers a compelling narrative of what daily life was like in this remarkable yet often overlooked service. Perhaps most importantly, Brozyna's use of personal histories as the basis for examining the logistics of WWII's European theater ensures that readers never lose sight of the individuals involved.

From Philadelphia to the Battle of the Bulge: The Brief LIfe of Pvt. John "Lefty" Zagarella, As Told In Letters, 1941-1945

by John Zagarella (Author), Donna Borrelli Long (Editor)

Personal correspondence and photographs demonstrate how the conflict affects U.S. Army, 28th Infantryman, Pvt. John "Lefty" Zagarella and his young bride Jeanne from 1941 to 1945. This compilation of letters, postcards and v-mails depicts their lives: his during training at Army camps in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Louisiana and Florida, and then later while serving in the European Theatre of Operations; and hers, as she waited anxiously at home; both of them contemplating their future together. That future was not to be. John Zagarella perished in the vicinity of Wiltz, Luxembourg during the Battle of the Bulge. Jeanne preserved and treasured her collection of letters for nearly seven decades; letters that reveal an extraordinary amount of courage, honor, sacrifice and love among two ordinary Americans, nurtured as a matter of course, even during the most trying of historical circumstances.
