005918-The Operations of the 509th Parachute Infantry Battalion (Separate), In the Invasion of North Africa, 8-17 November 1942 (North African Campaign) 25 Pages 1950 (Personal Experience of a Battalion Supply Officer) This monograph covers the operations of the 509th Parachute Infantry Battalion (Separate), in the invasion of North Africa, 8-17 November 1942. It was the first airborne operation attempted by the United States Army in World War II. Prior to the invasion of North Africa, the 509th Parachute Infantry Battalion was known as the "Second Battalion, 503rd Parachute Infantry". The change was in name only as personnel assignments remained the same. The 509th Parachute Infantry consisted of this one battalion throughout the war. The battalion arrived in the United Kingdom on 11 June 1942 and was one of the first combat units to arrive in the European Theater of Operations. Shortly after arrival in the United Kingdom the Battalion was placed under a British Airborne Division for training, operation and supply. This arrangement proved helpful as the lessons learned by the British from previous combat experiences were given to the Battalion. Through close association With the British Airborne Division, a warm friendship developed between the two units that grew with time. THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS A DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY.
