Warren F. Abele *** U.S. Army *** WWII 1942-1945

Sergeant Warren Abele served with the 33rd Armored Engineer Battalion, 7th Armored Division ("The Lucky Seventh") of the 3rd Army. His access to a Kodak folding 127 camera and a 35mm Argus camera provides us this unique pictorial from Utah Beach in 1944, across France, into the Ruhr Valley and Germany, pursuing the German Army until their surrender in May 1945. Very unique are a few color Kodachrome slides from that era.
