Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Signed Book

His book Brothers in Arms: the Epic Story of the 761st Tank Battalion, WWII's Forgotten Heroes, signed in New York City in May 2004.
Signing witnessed and book obtained by the owner of The Inkwell Autograph Gallery.

While most combat troops fought on the front for a week or two before being rotated back, the men of the 761st served for more than six months, fighting heroically under Patton's Third Army at the Battle of the Bulge and in the Allies' final drive across France and Germany. Despite a casualty rate that approached 50 percent and an extreme shortage of personnel and equipment, the 761st would ultimately help liberate some thirty towns and villages, as well as several branch concentration camps. The racism that shadowed them during the war and the prejudice they faced upon their return home are an indelible part of their story. Shining through most of all, however, are the lasting bonds that united them as soldiers and brothers, the bravery they exhibited on the battlefield, and the quiet dignity and patriotism that defined their lives.
