Circa 1945-1946. The covers are beat up pretty good- taped and pieces missing but still one can re-create what it looked like when new. Very used looking - but the contentts are good and unmarked. - map endpapers. Probably late 1945 or early 1946. Lists those who lost their lives and then photos of everyone from the county that they had: showing whos children they were, where they lived, where they trained where they seved, awards received .. etc. Of interest is a seperate section at the back showing only the Negroes from the county with a statement that begins: " The negroes have made valuable contribution to all of the war activities. Although the write-up and pictures for only a few are contained in the book ...etc." About sixty are pictured here in photos along with their data. Only on black woman Erma P. Boyd is pictured in this section and she was a WAAC who served in England and France and was awarded ATO, EAME, GC, Voictory and 1 overseas bar.
