Camp Ritchie Secrets Book
Beverley Driver Eddy's 2021 book about Camp Ritchie and the Ritchie Boys.
The story of Camp Ritchie, combining history with personal anecdote.
Stories of individuals or small groups of camp veterans are fascinating. However, the men’s knowledge of the camp’s training program is circumscribed by the class they attended and the particular specialty in which they were trained. And these veterans place far less emphasis on their training than on their actions in the war. As I looked at and listened to their stories, I could not help but notice a great variety in the men’s wartime activities. And I asked: How were these men trained for their remarkable assignments? And how effective was this training when put into practice in the field?
