Army Heritage Center Foundation Military History Webinar
In the new year, the Army Heritage Center Foundation will continue its webinar program on two Wednesdays each month, avoiding the third Wednesday of each month so as not to compete with the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center's Perspectives in Military History lecture series.
As always, if you miss one of the webinars, you can find it on the Army Heritage Center Foundation (AHCFoundation) YouTube Channel and, if you signed up for the program and missed the webinar, you will receive a link to the webinar/lecture.
A Combat Engineer With Patton's Army
This presentation is based on a new book, A Combat Engineer with Patton's Army: the Fight Across Europe With the 80th "Blue Ridge" Division in World War II. The book is heavily based on engineer records and the letters home written by Sergeant Frank Lembo, a squad leader in the 305th Engineer Combat Battalion. The book describes the engineers' work in contested river crossings of the Moselle, Seille, and Sauer rivers and the fighting of the 80th Division that the 305th supported, including the relief of Bastogne. It also gives first-hand insights into the life of the front-line GI.
