My granddad was a Hellcat, so I read this book to learn about what that division did during WWII It s a very quick read, so quick it seemed to devote as much time to the construction of their initial training facility as it did to the movements in Europe as General Patton s secret ard division While I was disappointed in it s lack of personal detail, it does give a rundown of each of their major battles in a concise manner The best thing about this book for me was that it whet my appetite for information on the Hellcats and I ll be seeking out other books on them in the future.
