   This is a partial compilation of the many books written about or by 1st Cavalry Division veterans. Many of these are out of print and only available from libraries, the publisher, or from rare or used book dealers.
   One such dealer is Q. M. Dabney, Inc., P.O. Box 42026, Washington, DC 20015, phone: (301) 881-1470. We retain as many as possible of these books in the small historical library at the 1st Cavalry Division Association National Headquarters, but we are missing more than a few. If you have an extra copy, you might consider donating it to the Association. We appreciate your generosity.
