OP 15) WE LUCKY FEW: PORTRAITS OF COURAGE & SACRIFICE FROM SE IOWA. This book comprises 110 interviews with World War II veterans from southeastern Iowa, many of whom were members of the 113th Cavalry of the Iowa National Guard, the "Red Horse Squadron." While the Redhorsers were deployed to Europe, all theaters of the war are represented here. These heroes' tales are unique because the majority of the men and women have seldom spoken of their war experiences before. In some cases, the interviews granted to the father and daughter editorial team of Larry Cuddeback and Cheyenne Cuddeback Miller represent the very first time a vet had ever spoken of the war. Some tell of ordinary and often humorous days in uniform. Some recall a war of harrowing combat or grueling privation and suffering in captivity. All are to be honored forever for their noble service to our country.

Iowa Out-of-Print Books, Journals, and Pamphlets

Until about 1998, CPB offered in our print catalog several Iowa Civil War titles as published over the last 140 years in various Iowa State Historical Society publications. These are articles as they appeared in the original issues of The Annals of Iowa (published from 1865 to the present), Iowa Historical Record (published from 1885 to 1902), Iowa Jounrnal of History and Politics (published from 1903 to 1961; in the 1940s “and Politics” was droppped from the title and the format was changed), and The Palimpsest (published from 1920 to 1996). I stopped putting these titles in the catalog mostly because of the lack of space, but I still have quite a few of them in inventory. I have at least one copy of each journal article listed below, and in some cases several copies. Most of these articles are listed in Dornbusch’s Military Bibliography of the Civil War. The articles offered here only extend to the early 1990s, although I’m sure more has been published by the State Historical Society on the Civil War since then. Each item is an entire issue of the journal and, despite some being a bit fragile due to age, most are in new, unissued condition. Considering the age and scarcity of some of these items, the prices are quite low. Along with the journal articles I have included a few out-of-print and one-of-a-kind books on Iowa in the Civil War.

If you'd like take the entire lot of 127 items (total value $1192.50) make me an offer.

Abbreviations: AI=Annals of Iowa; Cole=Garold L. Cole: Civil War Eyewitnesses: An Annotated Bibliography of Books and Articles 1955-1986; Dorn=C. E.
