Nothing But Praise: A History of the 1321st Engineer General Service Regiment
Defense Dept., Army, Corps of Engineers, Office of History
Nothing but Praise: A History of the 1321st Engineer General Service Regiment tells the story the training and battlefield experiences of one unit that served in Europe during World War II. Yet, in many ways, the experiences of the 1321st mirrored those of engineer units � both black and white � that served during the war: hard training followed by prolonged deployments overseas. If white general service regiments received little attention, the African American units often toiled in obscurity. This new publication, written by the regiment�s commander and including a diary he kept at the time, not only fills some of the gaps in engineers history, it attests to the crucial roles African American engineers played in the Allied victory in Europe.
