According to information available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, Nothing But Praise is the latest publication from the Office of History, Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It tells the story of the 1321st Engineer General Service Regiment during World War II from its 1943 activation in the U.S. through its deployment in Europe to its deactivation in Korea.

The book’s main component is a history of the African American regiment that its commander, Colonel Bagnulo, wrote around 1946. The history is supplemented with a reprint of the diary that Bagnulo kept during his time in France. Both sections are heavily illustrated with photographs depicting the men of the 1321st and the activities of the regiment.

The complete book is available in PDF format: Nothing But Praise. Copies of the book are also available through the US Government Printing Office.
