Told here is a riveting story of the 332nd US Infantry Regiment in the Army in World War I. As Pershing's 'Propaganda Regiment' they were the only American Regiment assigned to Italy where they formed a phantom army that helped defeat the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The 332nd fought in the Vittorio-Veneto Campaign and following the armistice served in the occupation of Austria Dalmatia and Montenegro. Includes the uniforms insignia and ephemera of the 332d lavishly illustrated with over 300 rare and previously unpublished colour and sepia photographs drawn from public and private collections. This detailed work illuminates the compelling story of the courageous 'Lions of St Mark'.
