One thing leads to another.... I found this narrative of the US 2d Armored Division for September 1944. Covering the final days of the pursuit from Normandy it is not particularly interesting but since I had a period map I thought I would unite the two. http://www.2ndarmoredhellonwheels.com/war_stories/7_days_combat_reports.html I'll copy the text here -- in the case the original disappears -- and place them in an order that moves the story from west to east though they actually overlap in time. The first report covers A Company of the 82d Armored Reconnaissance Battalion. The recon companies of the ARB consist of M-8 Armored Cars and jeep mounted scouts supported by assault guns (75mm howitzers on light tank carriages) and attached light tanks. ***EDIT 8JAN2014 - improved map*** Co. A, 82nd Reconnaissance from 13 Sept. 1944 to 2 October 1944.
