From the PublisherWWII History, November 2008
"Historian Harry Yeide captures the elan of the mechanized cavalry and its varied missions—landing in North Africa during Operation Torch, fighting in the jungles of Guadalcanal, climbing Italian peaks, and charging through French hedgerows. Through the author's use of official documents and first-person accounts, the reader is placed onto the battlefields to witness the heroics of the mechanized cavalry to sniff out the enemy and often become the first recipients of hostile fire. A definite 'must-read' about an often overlooked force."
