I have 2 M1's, a late WWII Springfield & a '55 HRA. I want to learn more about them & I am trying to figure out which book to begin with. I plan on aquiring other books down the pike, but with which should I begin? What are your guy's thoughts on this? If you could have one, which would it be? Why?
I appreciate any responses,

For basic rifle function and up-keep, Duff's are good.
For in-depth tinkering and function, look to Walt Kueleck's book and Kuhnhausen's. They are availible at Fulton Armory.
For in-depth history and development, get ejclancy's. He's a member here, and he has a ton of info that Duff and others do not have: http://www.garandm1rifle.com/ and http://www.users.fast.net/~eclancy

I would also suggest taking a look at Bruce Canfield's book on the M1 Garand and M1 Carbine (both covered in the same book). It is (IMHO) a little more "user friendly" if you're new to M1s. All are good and I have all of Duff's books as well as the Canfield book.
Another interesting M1 book is "Hatcher's Bookof the Garand". It was written by Julian Hatcher, author of "Hatcher's Notebook", another classic. Hatcher was present durng much of the development of the M1 and the book makes fascinating reading.
Both books by Hatcher are still available.
