From the foreword: "The fortunate location of the School in Oberammergau gave opportunities for the School Staff and Students to visit many places of historic interest. The Buildings themselves had formerly been used as a Messerschmitt experimental jet-propulsion factory." From the U. S. Army Germany website: "Hawkins Barracks, Oberammergau, Germany, was originally known as Hötzendorf Kaserne, the home station of the 54th Mountain Signal Battalion of the Wehrmacht's 1st Mountain Division. After the departure of the 1st Mountain Division, Hawkins Barracks was used by the Messerschmitt organization for drafting plans and conducting experimental work on jet aircraft engines. The bulk of the actual work was done in the 22 miles of lighted, air-conditioned caves dug into Laber Mountain directly behind the pistol range. The equipment for the plant was removed after the war and several partially successful attempts were made, by blasting, to seal tunnel entrances. US personnel were not permitted to enter the cavern. On 29 April 1945, the 409th Infantry Regiment, 103rd Infantry Division, with elements of the 10th Armored Division attached, occupied the town of Oberammergau. In June 1945, the 6819th Information and Education School occupied the Post. "; School At Oberammergau. N° de réf. du libraire 39556
