If someone in your association is interested, he can order the book from the publisher on his web site at

Thanks to forward the message to all.

I think it will be available soon on US site like:

Description of the book:

U.S.Army Infantry Divisions 1943-1945,
Volume 1, Organization, Doctrine, Equipment.

Note of the publisher

     In the first of a two-volume study, the author presents an extremely detailed record of the organisation, doctrine and equipment of U.S. Army infantry divisions during the latter part of World War II. The second volume will provide capsule histories for all U.S. Army infantry divisions during this period. After examining the state of the U.S. Army during the 1940-43 period, Yves Bellanger focuses on the 1943-45 period, and presents each of the division's sub-units - from the divisional HQ to an infantry battalion, from the divisional artillery to its combat engineer element. For each, the author examines their organisation (down to the lowest level possible), their training and tactical doctrine, in addition to listing all the equipment, vehicles and weapons they were issued with. 
The first volume concludes with  a comprehensive set of appendices, including sample command rosters.

     Main Selling Points 
        No equivalent book is available which covers the 1943-45 U.S. Army infantry divisions in comparable detail
        An extraordinarily-detailed guide - lists ALL equipment issued to ALL elements of the infantry division, from an infantry battalion's HQ company, to the division's military police platoon, thus including much information on rear-area units usually ignored or forgotten 
        Includes a large number of organisational charts,  plus detailed sample command rosters 
        Tactical doctrine is covered in detail, drawing extensively on contemporary US field manuals
        The author received extensive assistance from US veterans in writing this book

An essential reference for re-enactors, modellers, wargamers, researchers and anyone who requires a detailed guide to the U.S. Army during the 1943-45 period.

Thanks for you interest.

Best wishes,

Yves J. Bellanger

Subject: Anthony Catanzaro, combat medic, 376th infantry, 3rd battalion 
From: dadestefano click to email me

I read the story about the battle for Wies on the 94th division web page.

I was wondering if Sgt. Mardsen or any others would remember the names of the combat medics that came to his aide.  My uncle was a combat medic in the 376th, third battalion, who was awarded a commendation and bronze star for coming to the aid of wounded January 1945.

To the best of my ability to research, I believe my uncle (Anthony Catanzaro) was in company M, possibly with Lt. King. It is quite possible that he was in this area as M company most likely provided the heavy weapons support.

I have posted photos on the 94th web site and could e mail them to those interested.

Just wanted to write a quick Thank You to all the folks at the 94th Reunion in Knoxville.  Especially the men of E Company and their wifes.  I was looking for information on my grandfather who was in E Co., and these people really made me feel welcomed and bent over backwards to try and help me out.  I really enjoyed myself.  Thanks again and you are truly the greatest generation.

Subject: 301st whereabouts on Feb. 8 

Mr. Massey, I am the son of Howard L. Cooper (ser. no. 36895007) who was with the 301st Inf. Reg. He was killed on February 8, 1945 shortly before my birth. I have posted a request concerning events surrounding his death on your site, but have not received any responses.

Are there any other resources I might try to get such information? For example, are there resources I might read regarding the whereabouts of the 301st on or about February 8 of 1945? Thank you for any help
you might be able to provide.

Subject: Vincent Thomas (Tom) O'Brien

My father, Vincent Thomas (Tom) O'Brien, enlisted in the Army on 5/21/43 and entered active service on 8/2/43.  He was from Pottsville, Pennsylvania.  He was assigned to the 301st Infantry Regiment 94th Infantry Division.  His rank was Cpl. as a Cannoneer (844) for 19 months.  For six months he served as a Gunner (603).  I know he was in Krumlov, Czheclovokia in August of 1945. 

He passed away in 1987 and I am trying to find anyone who may have served with him during this time.  If you have any information you would like to share with me, please email me at pmob59@msn.com.
