Re: A Cautionary Tale!
In Response To: Re: A Cautionary Tale! ()

Sharon,

Your "cautionary" note has been noted, however, the only problem I have with Hargrove's book is the title, "Buffalo Soldiers in Italy." I am not going to quiver too much over that due to the confusion and differences of opinion on the lineage of the Buffalo Soldiers. My opinion is the book was well researched and written. However, there may be some flaws which is not unusual when researching a topic such as this. Hargrove listed chapter notes as well as a bibliography that included books, special studies, magazines, newspapers and the Official Records of the 92nd Infantry Division.

Sources of the Statistical Data and Tables were from the Official Program, 92nd Division Armistice Day Program, 11 November, 1945, in Italy, and from the 92nd Infantry Division Book of Facts, 3 January 1949.

Hargrove's conclusions are rather mild in comparision to other documents I have read plus conversations I have had with some veterans of General Almond's 92nd Infantry Division. Statements from many of the veterans do not meet the standards for posting on this Forum.

I stand by Hargrove until you and others convince me otherwise with more than a "cautionary" note.
