History of this unique piece of history:
At the close of WWII, the 272nd Infantry Regiment printed a history of its movement from the time it left Camp Shelby, MS until the war in Europe ended VE-Day. Among the outstanding features of the history was a four page, fold-out color map drawn by Werner C Abken and Roland L. Smith of Company C and Service Company of the regiment. The size of the map extended was about 27 inches by 10 inches.
The map shows the route movement of the 272nd Infantry Regiment from the time it left New York until it reached Torgau, April 26,1945, where it performed its mission of guarding the road area between Eilenburg and Torgau, Germany But it is generally the route taken by the entire 69th Infantry Division and its Attached Units in WWII.
