Beschreibung

Rare--very few of these training problem sheets have survived. Single 8 inch by 10.5 inch mimeographed sheet, with text on one side only. This has been folded in half and half again resulting in an approximately 5.25 by 4 inch object when fully folded. This sheet has been fully opened and placed in a clear plastic protective sleeve. On 24 June 1921, the unit was reconstituted as the Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 173rd Infantry Brigade, and was assigned to the Organized Reserve Corps and the 87th Division. It was reorganized in December 1921, redesignated on 23 March 1925 as the HHC 173rd Brigade, and redesignated as HHC 173rd Infantry Brigade on 24 August 1936. During World War II, the HHC 173rd Infantry Brigade was designated as the 87th Reconnaissance Troop in February 1942 and activated on 15 December 1942. Though the brigade in name did not exist during the war, the redesignation meant that it carried the lineage of the 87th Reconnaissance Troop, and when the brigade was reactivated, it would include the troop's lineage and campaign streamers. The troop entered combat in 1944 and fought in three European campaigns; central Europe, the Rhineland and Ardennes-Alsace operations. After the war, the troop reverted to reserve status and was posted at Birmingham, Alabama from 1947 until 1951. On 1 December 1951, the troop was inactivated and released from its assignment to the 87th Infantry Division. This is dated April 14, 1949. It references FIELD ORDER No. 11. It provides information on Enemy Forces, Friendly Forces, and Mission before ending with the statement of the PROBLEM. The Map reference s 1:20,000 West Point and Vicinity. Reference is made to Field Orders No. 1 - 7 for the disposition of enemy forces. The issue is that the Aggressor forces control the Bear Mountain Bridge and have it prepared for demolition. It controls a key crossing of the Hudson River. Friendly Forces are en route from Buffalo and Albany and require the bridge intact to enable a further advance toward New York City and Bridgeport, Connecticut. The defenses available to the Aggressor forces are detailed. The students are directed to "Prepare a plan for the seizure and holding of Bear Mountain Bridge to forestall and prevent its destruction by Aggressor." Presumed First Edition, First printing thus.
