Fort Riley World War II-era photographs

 Collection
Call Number: RH PH 517

Overview

Photographs of Fort Riley, Kan. and other locations during World War II and the years directly following. The photographs appear to have been taken mostly by a sergeant who trained at Fort Riley and was later sent overseas to serve in Europe and Japan. Several photographs show a three-vehicle wreck in a roadside ditch 33 kilometers from Landshut, Germany, potentially as part of "Exercise Normal," a large scale war maneuvers training event in the fall of 1948.
