Come What Will
A Chronicle of Georgia's 101st Separate Coast Artillery Battalion Antiaircraft, Automatic Weapons Limited to the Period February 16, 1942 -- January 1, 1944 The First American Ground Combat Troops In New Guinea World War II

This book was written by Lt. Col Richard W. Titus, a member of the 101st AAA and commanding officer of Battery C based at Port Moresby and Milne Bay.

The book begins with the 101st activation in Georgia, and deployment overseas aboard the HMS Queen Mary to Australia and then aboard another ship to Port Moresby.

At Port Moresby, the 101st established 50 caliber machine gun positions to defend the town and airfields from attacks by enemy aircraft. The book chronicles the authors memories of numberous Japanese air raids against Port Moresby.

This book is unavailable, aside for a few copies in libraries, archives and museums.
