Kagnew Patch Kagnew Station History Kagnew Patch

Updated June 23, 2007
Earlier this year, I ran across an original copy of "A History of Kagnew Station and American Forces in Eritrea" on ebay and it cost me over $90.00 to get it! The history on the Kagnew site was manually keyed in by me years ago from a photocopy of this book. In the 10 years I've been doing this web page, this is only the 2nd copy I've ever seen and I missed a chance on that copy. I wasn't going to miss this one.

Unbelievably, a short time later I was able to make contact with John Rasmuson, the author of the book and he provided me with a perfect, original copy! My thanks to John.

It's possible I could create a CD of extremely high quality images of each page and make it available for purchase, with the price being just enough to cover the cost of the CD and mailing to you. Scanned images of that size would just be too large for the web page and my available bandwidth and would be extremely painful for those that do not have broadband access.


After a marathon scanning session the past two days, I have the entire book scanned and available for viewing. Click the links and download the PDF files to your hard drive. I highly recommend you to do this and keep your personal copy locally which will allow you to view them quicker.
