Hi! I don't normally follow this board, but I thought some of you who use NOOKs or other e-readers might be interested in the following.
This month's free eBook from the University of Chicago Press is Instructions for American Servicemen in France during World War II. From the publisher's website:
"This book was issued to soldiers just before they embarked for France to help them understand both why they were going and what they'd find when they got there. After lying unseen in Army archives for decades, this singular guide is now a facsimile edition that reproduces the full text and illustrations of the original along with a new introduction by Rick Atkinson setting the book in context. A souvenir for the 70th anniversary of the war."
