    There is not a lot of information out there about the 517th. This book fills in the first half of their campaign. Loic has done an amazing job of research, finding stories, documentation, photos, and artifacts that have not been seen before and puts it together in a well throughout format.

  2. Submitted by Nowinski for Marc Havlik

    A friend of mine asked if he could borrow my copy of “The 517th gang by Loïc Jankowiak”. He said, “ I read that book from cover to cover. I couldn’t put it down. I’ve read many WW2 books in my 80 yrs of life, I never read a more organized, easy to understand book. He added, the collection of the candid eyewitness accounts are things you don’t ever hear about all in one book. These men tell their story from the heart. Great book!

    This is unlike any other book I have read. As I read testimony’s of each soldier i felt like I was seeing through their eyes and feeling what they felt. The Author of this book is so organized. Very easy to follow the footsteps of the 517th. Great Job!!
