Summary
The Purge of the Thirtieth Division is the only known account by any of the eighteen National Guard division commanders mobilized in 1940 and 1941. Russell's memoir provides not only a first-hand look into the training of National Guard units in preparation for World War II, but also offers a scathing indictment of the Army high command for unfair treatment of National Guard officers. Featuring commentary from a recently retired Army National Guard general, this republication of Russell's privately printed memoir sheds new light on a controversial chapter of the U.S. Army as it prepared to enter the war.--Provided by publisher
