‘Devil Dogs’ by Professor Saul David – 25th January 2023

The dramatic tale of the first American troops to take the fight to the enemy in the Second World War and also the last.

Devil Dogs is the latest book by Saul David MA PhD FRHistS, The Sunday Times best-selling military historian. It places the searing experience of King Company, US Marine Corps in the broader context of the brutal war in the Pacific and does for the USMC what Band of Brothers did for the 101st Airborne.

By kind permission of the Garrison Commander and the Garrison Sergeant Major, Saul David, will talk about Devil Dogs on the evening of Wednesday 25th January 2023 in the HQ R SIGNALS WO’s and Sgts’ Mess at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blandford_Camp DT11 8RH.  A complimentary drink will be offered on arrival and the bar will be available in the Mess after the talk, (all forms of payment at the bar accepted).  Copies of Devil Dogs and other books by Saul David will be on sale on the night and there will be an opportunity to have a copy signed by the author.
