Book Talk on the 164th Infantry Regiment in World War II

Posted by Daniel Sauerwein on April 27, 2010

This evening, I attended a book talk at the library, where Dr. Terry Shoptaugh of Minnesota State University Moorhead, presented the story of the 164th Infantry Regiment, which is the subject of his new book They Were Ready: The 164th Infantry in the Pacific War, 1942-1945. Shoptaugh presented a wonderful talk, with an illustrative slide show, chronicling several different and interesting stories of the men who served in the regiment, focusing on the regiment’s exploits at Guadalcanal, Bougainville, and the Philippines. After the talk, Shoptaugh answered questions from the audience and signed copies of his book, which is available at the UND Bookstore. At a future date, this blog will review the book. Here are some useful links:

Hopefully, this work will be a catalyst for more studies on National Guard units in World War II.
