^I've got a first printing (I think) from Dad. Damn book's probably older than me!
I paid $250 for a copy of the unit history of my grandpa's engineer regiment a couple of years ago, but it was well worth it for the photos and details on the Battle of the Bulge. I wish he'd been around to see it, but my grandma enjoyed it.
I also have a 56th Fighter Group "yearbook" that I got from a 56th pilot many years ago. It has individual photos of every pilot, a full list and synopsis of every mission, and just tons of photos of planes and daily life at the base. A real gold mine!
