Description du livre S.N., S.L., 1945. Hardcover. État : Very Good. 175 p. : chiefly ill. ; 33 cm. An unusual and interesting unit history, comprised almost entirely of Rutherfoord's drawings. There are 176 sketches, all two per page for about 78 pages. The first drawing shows amphibian boats heading to a distant beach and is entitled "On the 11th of January, 1945 we headed for shore". The paper label on the front cover is a bit wrinkled and the spine cloth slightly faded, otherwise a nearly fine copy of a very rare description of World War II fighting. No place of publication, but probably the Philippines. A wonderful book. N° de réf. du libraire 007029
