About this title:

Synopsis:

Merriam Press World War 2 History Series

Drawing on company histories, memoirs, and interviews, this book traces the history of the men of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Mobile Radio Broadcasting Companies during World War II. It begins with the establishment of a secret camp in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the specialized training in military intelligence and propaganda services that the men received there.

It then follows these men abroad: to further training in Britain, to the D-Day landings, Battle of the Bulge, Conquest of Germany, and liberation of the concentration camps. It includes stories from those German- and Austrian-born men from Sharpe who returned in U.S. army uniform to their old hometowns, and concludes with a discussion of the soldiers' immediate postwar activities as translators, interpreters, radio broadcasters, and journalists in the American zones of occupation in Germany and Austria.

The book is enriched with new material, including photographs, acquired through personal interviews and correspondence with nine veterans of the camp.

Beverley Driver Eddy is professor emerita of German at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
