About this Item

458p. The first (and last) issue which deals with the attack on Pearl Harbor but on page. 192 both the caputre of Guam and Wake Island are noted, though the Bataan Peninsula fell in April and the fortress at Corregidor surrendered in may 1942. Although tanks are recognized as essential, the book still defends the Cavalry without recognizing what J.F.C. Fuller and Liddell Hart had demonstrated a decade earlier. Much of this failure to modernize is unjustly laid on General John K. Herr though he had already tried in 1939 to convertd one squadron (the 2nd Cavalry) to a mechanzied unit. He also addressed the Army War College and suggested the same for the 7th Cavalry Brigade. Slowly the unit was eased out and saw little service except in Texas (though it was one of the few units that had integrated African-Americans as part of its core). Besides being a very good copy with no significant wear, it also has the original packet with the copy of map A, and the two protractors. Often this packet which accompanied the book is lacking. The unofficial name to his item was "The Cavalry Journal". Previous owner's name else a near fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 018412
