The Purge of the Thirtieth Division is the only known account by any of the eighteen National Guard division commanders mobilized in 1940 and 1941. Russell’s memoir provides not only a first-hand look into the training of National Guard units in preparation for World War II, but also offers a scathing indictment of the Army high command for unfair treatment of National Guard officers. Featuring commentary from a recently retired Army National Guard general, this republication of Russell’s privately printed memoir sheds new light on a controversial chapter of the U.S. Army as it prepared to enter the war.
