About this title

Synopsis:

The top living D-Day historian.--USA Today

"No one has written a better or more comprehensive history of a U.S. Army combat division in World War II than Joseph Balkoski in his five volumes on the 29th Infantry Division. The Last Roll Call is a powerful, splendid capstone to this exceptional achievement."--Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the Liberation Trilogy

Joseph Balkoski concludes his landmark series on the U.S. 29th Infantry Division in World War II with the story of the 29ers during the war's final five months. Opening with the division's participation in Operation Grenade, Balkoski follows the 29ers through the crossing of the Roer River, the blitzkrieg-style drive across the Rhineland to the Rhine River, their military-government duties while helping to reduce the Ruhr pocket, and the survivors' return home.

  • Powerful finale to the saga of an American division in Europe in World War II
  • Blends meticulous research with masterful storytelling
  • Strong emphasis on the men of the 29th and their stories
