According to the book description of The Men of Fox Company: History and Recollections of Company F, 291st Infantry Regiment, Seventy-Fifth Infantry Division, “Wishing to know what his father experienced in World War II, Scott Adams went looking for answers. He wrote Edgar “Ted” Cox who commanded Fox Company and sent out newsletters.   Ted sent Scott a package of letters written by men who served in Fox Company. After reading the letters, Adams felt inspired to tell the story of the men his father fought with. “The Men of Fox Company: History and Recollections of Company F, 291st Infantry Regiment, Seventy-Fifth Infantry Division” is their story.

The book describes, through recollections, the actions of an infantry rifle company who fought in Europe during World War II.
