Airborne Reference Presented to Noted Officer
Several years ago I had the honor of purchasing several items from the widow of Col. Julian Cook, 504th PIR and pioneer in the Special Forces. He is of course most known for leading the river crossing in Holland and was portrayed by Robert Redford in the movie A BRIDGE TOO FAR.
This massive reference work of over 500 pages details the history of the U.S. Army Airborne from conception through Vietnam.
In excellent condition, the cover is embossed to Colonel Julian A. Cook 504 and inscribed within as presented by the 504th to Mrs. Cook as her husband had recently died.
