If is, however, a sfory which begins long before fhe Nazi version of German mili- farism sfruck down fhe peoples of Europe, before Japanese im- perialism ravaged China and imprisoned fhe islands of I-he Soufh Pacific--before fhe world was fhrown info fhis greafesf of all wars. John Adams was Presidenf of fhe nafion, and George Wash- ing-lon had iusf reiired fo his home in Mounf Vernon when fhe I3fh Regimenf of lnfanfry was formed on July Ibfh, I798. This was in accordance wifh fhe firsi' plan for expansion of fhe Unifed Sfafes Army affer fhe War of Independence. The l3fh was musfered ouf in January, I800, buf was reconsfifufed in 'I-he firsf year of fhe War of I8I2, and fook parf in a number of engage- menfs during fha-I conflicf. In May, I8I5, fhe I3-Ih was consolidafed wifh fhe Sfh lnfanfry Regimenf, and if saw no more acfive service unfil fhe Mexican War. Alfhough a rosfer of officers during fhal- conflicf is sfill in exisfence, no record is available of fhe Regimenf's role in baffle. Reconsfifufed on May 3, I86I, wifh General W. T. Sherman as ifs com- mander, and Philip Sheridan as one of ifs capfains, fhe Regimen'l's service from fhaf day fo fhis is confinuous. If was under Sherman a few monfhs lafer fha? fhe l3fh saw ifs firsf acfion in fhe Civil War. If was Gran'l"s plan fo hold Pemberfon, while Sherman, wifh fhe l3fh Regimen-I of fhe Unifed Sfafes lnfanfry, crossed 'Ihe Black River in rear of ihe Confederafe forces. Affer much difficulfy, Sherman succeeded in landing his forces near Walnuf Hills, Mississippi, on Decem- ber 22, I862. A week lafer, fhe heavy firsl- of fhe I3fh assisfed 'Ihe 6fh -Mis- souri in crossing Chickasaw Bayou. The main affack failed, and Granl' was driven back: buf fhe I3fh was hiqhli commended and on January II, l863, parficipafed in fhe capfure of fhe Arkansas Posf, where if received a ci- fafion for gallanfry. Beginning wifh fhe Baffle of Haynes Bluff, on May I, I863, 'rhe I3fh fook parf in a series of engagemenfs in Mississippi which culminafed in fhe as- saulf af Vicksburg. Then on May I9, I863, 'Ihe colors of fhe l3fh lnfanfry flew briefly afop fhe Confederafe sfronghold af Vicksburg. Seven men carried fhe colors fhaf day, and all seven losf fheir lives. The I3fh was fhe only regimenf fo reach fhe Confeder- afe posifion. Granf had greafly under- esfimafed fhe sfrengfh of 'lhe enemy, and fhe affack was repulsed wifh heavy losses. Though fhe price fhey paid was high, fhe officers and men of fhe I3fh fhaf day won for 'rhe Regimenf fhe mo-Ho which if sfill refains. Their valor so impressed General Granf fhaf he direcfecl fhaf fhe I3fh Regimenf of Uniied Sfafes Infanfry be permiffed fo carry on ifs colors, from fhaf day forward, fhe legend, "Firsf af Vicksburg." Affer fhe Civil War, fhe Governmenf again reduced fhe Army. ln I869, only four regimenfs of lnfanfry-fhe I2fh, l3fh, 20+h and 23rd-remained infacf. These were frequenfly broken up info one or fwo company unifs and seni' 'Io fighf Indians or assisf in fhe de- velopmenf of fhe Wesf. Companies E. F, and H had fhe honor of forming parf of Gen- eraI.Sherman's funeral escorf in I892. Company F represenfed fhe Reglmenf af fhe opening of fhe World's Columbian Exposifion in Chicago in I893. The nexf year fhe I3fh lnfanfry was garrisoned af Forf Niagara, Forf Porfer and Governor's Island in New York, and fhere remained unfil fhe Spanish-American War. When war broke ouf wifh Spain, fhe I3fh was assigned fo fhe Isf Division, V Corps. af Sanfiago, Cuba, on June 20, I898, and was engaged in baffle af El Caney shorfly fhereaffer. s Nexf fhe Regimenf was given fhe fask of guarding prisoners of war, and in Sepfember, I898, embarked for ifs home sfafions in New York. ln May, I899, if was senf fo fhe Philippines. In July. I900, fhe Regimenf refurned fo fhe Unifed Sfafes, where ifs unifs were senf fo various Wesf Coasf sfafions. In May. I903, Company I was ordered fo For-I Liscum, Alaska. From I905 'Io I907, 'Ihe Regimenf was again in fhe Philippines. In Ocfober, I9l I, affer four years garrison dufy af Forf Leavenworfh, Kansas, if made a fhird frip fo fhe Islands, where if remained unfil fhe oufbreak of World War I. In July, I9I7, fhe I3l'h lnfanfry refurned fo California and was immediafely senf fo Camp Fremonf. ln January of fhe following year, if became a parf of I-he 8fh Infanfry Division. As a member of fhaf organizafion, if did noi parficipafe in baffle in World War I. Affer fhe war, unifs of fhe l3fh lnfanfry were sfafioned af one fime or anofher af Forf Devens, Massachuseffs, Bosfon Harbor Forfs, Forf Efhan Allen, Vermonf, and Forf Adams, Rhode Island. In Ocfober, I939, fhe Regimenf was ordered fo fhe Canal Zone. There in June, l940, ifs personnel, wifh fhe excepfion of fhe band. was frans- ferred fo ofher organizafions. In July, 'rhe Regimenf was reconsfifufed af Forl' Jackson, Soufh Carolina, as a member of fhe presenf Bfh Infanfry Division. Beginning in Sepfember, I94I, fhe 8fh Division, fhen under command of Major General James P. Marley affer a brief period under Brig. General Wm. E. Shedd, and already well fhrough ifs preliminary sfages of frain- ing, fook parf in fhe Carolina ma- neuvers. Then came Pearl Harbor. The 8+h Division was ordered fo pafrol 'Ihe Aflanfic coasf. For six weeks during fhe Winfer of I942, unifs of fhe Divi- sion ranged along fhe easfern shores of fhe counfry from Norfh Carolina fo fhe Florida Keys. Refurning fo Forf Jackson Iafe in March, fhe Division resumed ifs frain- ing. During 'the following monfh, by an order of fhe War Deparfmenf, if be- came fhe 8'rh Moforized Division. Be- fween March and July, fhe Division furnished cadres of l280 men each fo fhe 77'Ih and 80fh Divisions, and a cadre of 200 men for acfivafion of Headquarfers Company, XII Corps. On July I, I942, Brigadier General Paul E. Peabody succeeded Maior General Marley as Division Command- l er. ln Sepfember of fhaf year, fhere was a mofor march fo fhe area of fhe Tennessee maneuvers, Two more monfhs of war games furfher hard- ened fhe froops of fhe 8fh. Then affer a brief sfay in fenfs af Camp Forresf, Tennessee, fhe Division sef ouf for ifs new sfafion, Forf Leonard Wood, Missouri. From December, I942, fo March, I943, fhere was anofher period of comparafive calm. Again fhe Division changed commanders, Major General William C. Mc- Mahon assuming fhe pos? on January 24, I943. ln March, I943, 'rhe 8fh moved fo Camp Laguna, Arizona, for six monfhs of deserf fraining. During fhe laffer parf of fhis period, if was de-moforized reverfing once more fo ifs original sfafus as a sfandard infanfry division. Upon complel-ion of deserf fraining, fhe Division refurned fo Camp Forresf. Preparafions were begun immediafely for an over- seas movemenf. Lafe in November, fhe Bfh arrived af 'rhe Sfaging area af Camp Kilmer, New Jersey. Then, on December 5, I943, a convoy, bearing fhe 8fh lnfanfry Division, sailed from New York Harbor. Training in Norfhern Ireland was as varied as fhe limifed fer- rain permilfed. Greafesf emphasis was placed on small unif facfics. On July I, I944, a convoy of four Troop ships and Twelve mofor Transporfs sfeamed ouT of BeIfasT Harbor, carrying The 8Th Divi- sion To The conTinenT of Europe. On July 4, TwenTy-eighT days afTer D-Day of The Normandy invasion, The Division began embarking aT Omaha Beach on The Cherbourg peninsula. Two days IaTer, if had assembled in The viciniTy of Monfebourg, where final prepara- Tions for baTTIe were compleTed. The plan for The XIII Corps, To which The 8Th Division was as- signed, was To affack To The souTh Toward La Haye du PuiTs. The 8Th Division was To pass Through The 82nd Airborne Division, Tak- ing over The cenTer of The Corps fronT. The main efforT of The drive was To be made in This secTor. Early on The morning of July 8, The Division iumped off on ifs firsT aTTack in The BaTTIe of France. The 28Th and I2IsT Regimenfs were on line, The I3Th in reserve. The firsT obiecfive, The Ay River, was sTrongIy defended by The Germans, and progress was slow. The Division had only advanced I,000 yards, when a counTer-aT- Tack hiT The I2IsT InfanTry, buT was repulsed wiTh a nighT aTTack by The reserve baTTaIion wiThouT loss of ground. The aTTack began again The nexT morning. Again The enemy counTer aTTacked. During The affernoon of The Third day The ad- vance Tempo quickened. Infanfry elemenfs isolafed small pockefs of Germans, by-passed Them and forged ahead. Corps Cavalry Then cleaned up The disorganized enemy eIemenTs. During The following Three days, however, The enemy conTinued To resisT all aTTempTs To break Through his lines. On The morning of July I3, The 28Th InfanTry was placed in Division reserve. The I3Th InfanTry passed Through ThaT zone of acTion and wenT inTo The aTTack for The firsT Time. Progress was sTilI slow, buT on The following day, boTh assaulfing regimenTs reached The norTh bank of The Ay River. The 8Th Division had been Through iTs firsT acTion of World War II. IT had reached iTs firsT obiecTive and suffered iTs firsT casual- Ties. The TerriTory iT had Taken was slighfg The advance had been slow. The lessons learned, however, were many. Commanders and Troops had become baTTle-wise To The enemy's Tacfics. Hedgerows pad! become as familiar as The hills of Missouri and Norfhern Ire- an . The 8Th Division was in The viciniTy of The Ay River and on The 26Th of July aflacked. The Division succeeded in The breakThrough of The German lines. American Armor drove inTo The breakfhrough area creafed by The infanTry eIemenTs and began The Iighfning ThrusTs Through BriTTany and EasTern France, which were To sweep beyond Paris To The fronTiers of Germany. The I3Th InfanTry Regi- menT now called Combaf Team I3, had been moTorized and aT- Tached To The 4Th Armored Division. Three divisions of The American VIII Corps, The 2nd, 29Th and 8Th, were assigned To The baTTIe of BresT. Tremendous arTilIery sTrengTh was broughf up To assisT The aTTack. The Corps plan for The aTTack was To use all Three divisions To close in on The Ger- man defenders from Three sides. The conquesT of BresT and The Crozon peninsula required from AugusT 24 unTil Sepfember I7. In four days of swifT advance, The uniTs of The 8Th Division Took more Than seven Thousand prisoners. On The morning of November 2I The drive on Hurfgen opened. AfTer much hard fighTing Hurfgen Tell on The affernoon of The 28Th of November. The firsT few weeks of December was ufilized by The Division To mop up enemy pockefs and hold Their posiTions. In The 8Th Division Secfor, The period, December I3-I7, was rela- Tively quieT. During The nighT, December I6-I7, German Troop TransporTs flew over The Division zone and dropped 300 To 500 paraTroops in rear and adiacenf areas. On The preceding day, a vioIenT enemy counTeroffensive had crashed Through Thinly held FirsT Army lines on a forTy-five fronT from Monschau, Germany, To cenTraI Lux- embourg. Thus began whaT has been commonly called The "BaTTle of The BuIge." During The remainder of January and early February, The Di- vision conTinued iTs holding mission along The wesT bank of The Roer River. There was IiTTIe enemy acTiviTy. Meanwhile, on February 5, The Division was Transferred To The VII Corps, FirsT Army. AfTer parTicipaTing in The capfure of Duren The I3Th Then wiThdrew To assembly areas in Duren To awaiT aTTach- menT To The 3d Armored Division for The drive To The Rhine.

EBTH FIELD HTILLEHY B TT LIU "l3UN5HnTs" IIIJMBAT AEEUMPLISHMENTS GUNSHOT-ON THE WAY These words, signalling anolher round or volley leaving lhe guns of lhe 28lh Field Arlillery Bal- lalion, were flashed by radio or lelephone more lhan eighly lhou- sand limes during lhe ballles lo overwhelm lhe German Wehr- machl. GUNSHOT-ON THE WAY! To all arlillerymen, lhese are magic words. anxiously awailed by lhe observers crouched in lheir foxholes. GUNSHOT-ON THE WAY! Weary cannoneers, cover- ing lheir ears, hear lhe roar of lheir guns, and begin preparalions for lhe nexl and lhe nexl and lhe nexl rounds. On 5 December I943, al 3 a.m., on a cold bleak morning in New York Harbor, a long line of soldiers carrying slaggering packs filed aboard lhe ship Durban Caslle. This Brilish ship, designed lo carry eighleen hundred, was loaded wilh lhree lhousand lwo hundred officers and men. Deslinalion-unknown. The seas were rough, lhe going lough. The Chaplain's Service became so popular lhal lhere wasn'l a ioom large enough lo hold all lhe men. So, lwelve days laler, Belfasl Harbor looked beauliful-in lhe rain. The unloading was done al nighl, and lhe men of lhe 28lh filed aboard lhe lrains lo lake lhem inlo Ireland-lhe place where lhey were deslined lo spend six wel monlhs--lo lhe Caslle Aughen- laine, near lhe small village of Clogher, and Fivemilelown in lhe Counly of Tyrone. Everyone was changed afler D-Day. Possibly gelling oul of Ire- land had somelhing lo do wilh il, bul lhe ballalion was unani- mous in ils desires lo hil lhe beach in France, and il wasn'l long in coming. On l July I944, lhe 28+h Field, half loaded on lhe Liberly Ship Ackerson, lhe resl aboard lhe passenger liner, Ex- chequer, sailed from Belfasl Harbor, headed for France and lhe war. On lhe 4lh of July, il was realily. Omaha Beach-and ashore again. "Gunshol" was lo reinforce lhe fires of lhe 90lh Division Arlillery, already in lhe line, in lhe vicinily of lhe Forel de Monle Caslro. Thal nighl lhe Ballalion moved inlo posilion, al 6 a.m., on lhe 6lh of July, lhe firsl round was fired by Ballery B. Twenly-four hours laler five hundred and lwelve rounds had been fired, and "Gunshol" was speaking-in a voice of aulhorily. The ballalion was proud of ils firsl day's efforls when lhe 90lh Division said of il: "The line was held by a handful of Engineers and lhe fire from lhe 2Blh Field Arlillery." On 8 July, lhe Division as a whole was. commilled lo aclion. "Gunshol," in general supporl, was very busy. The Germans look lime oul lo lhrow a few lheir way, bul only succeeded in wrecking one gun lire. The foxholes were gelling beller and beller. On lhe 26lh of July, lhe Division iumped lhe Ay River, and lhe armor poured across. Al Sl. Lo, lhe big breaklhrough was successful. Gunshol, licking ils wounds, crossed lhe Ay River and began a series of displacemenls deslined lo conlinue righl lhrough Nor- mandy and inlo Brillany. ll had been shelled, morlared, and bombed, bul always il delivered lhe goods. The fiber and back- bone of a greal organizalion had been conslrucled. On lhe I6lh of Augusl, "Gunshol" was called upon lo help lhe Sixlh Armored al Bresl. On lhe 24lh of Augusl lhe Eighlh Division was reassembled again al Bresl, and "Gunshol" was recalled and placed under Division conlrol. The ballle for Bresl was aboul lo open-a ballle deslined lo lasl a monlh-lo be one of lhe mosl biller and leasl publicized fighls of all lhe ballles in Europe. On lhe I0lh of Seplember, afler a biller fighl, lhe Division reached ils obieclives-lhe firsl Division of lhe Corps lo do so. Bul lhe old slory, no resl for lhe weary, applied. The Eighlh was or- dered lo lhe Crozon Peninsula, soulh of Bresl, lo clean il up and open lhe harbor. ll was lo be slriclly an Eighlh Division show. On I3 Seplember, "Gunshol" closed in ils new area on lhe Crozon Peninsula. The following day lhe doughboys lumped off. Again lhe 28lh, firing walls of explosive, helped lhem on lheir way. The resislance was slubborn-lhe going slow. The lricky German had many hid- den morlars and guns-somelhing musl be done. Al 0900 hours in lhe morning of lhe l8lh, a lhunderous barrage shook Crozon. "Gunshol" and ils cohorls were beginning lhe reduclion of lhe wall and lhe forl lhal barred lhe palh of lhe infanlry. For lwo hours, under a blislering sun, lhe Cannoneers swealed, firing eighleen hundred rounds inlo lhe German forl. When lhe fire was lifled al IIOO hours, lhe doughs ploughed lhrough lhe rubble. Crozon was caplured. The banners of lhe Eighlh Division flew proudly over lhe conquered ciladels. "Gun- shol," proud of ils parl, resled and was happy. Finally, on I5 November, lhe Ballalion was suddenly and wilh- oul warning ordered norlh inlo Germany proper. The deslinalion was lhe dreaded Hurlgen Foresl. "Gunshol" hacked ils posilions oul of solid foresl and moved in. The guns bogged down-bul superhuman efforl pul lhem inlo ac- lion. Snow, sleel, rain and hail-huls lo be buill, ammunilion slored -a Command Posl buill-and lhe ballle was on. Jerry was solidly enlrenched and was lhrowing lhe book al lhe doughboys. Never was so much fire encounlered before. If a hun- dred yards were gained, lhe Hun counler-allacked. "Gunshol" fired many a normal barrage allempling lo break lhe German formalions. On one counler-ellack, all lhe ammunilion in lhe bal- lalion, over nine-hundred rounds, was fired excepl for eighly rounds. Thal allack was slopped bul il was a close call. Now a new lask was given lhe Division and lhe 28lh-lo force lhe Roer River farlher norlh, lo caplure lhe Cily of Duren, and lo drive lo lhe Rhine, "Gunshol" was ready, willing, and able. The Roer proved lo be a lough nul lo crack. Three lhousand rounds were fired in lwo days. The cannoneers, slill working in mud, paid off. Duren fell on lhe 25lh afler a lough fighl. When lhe Remagen Bridge was grabbed, lhe enlire Division began a series of shifls up and down lhe Rhine lo cover lhe flank of lhe bridgehead. The 28lh found some good spols--from lhe hearl of burned oul Cologne lo lhe cily of Bonn lo lhe Soulh. The drive lo splil lhe Ruhr pockel asunder was begun on lhe 8lh of April. For lhe arlillery, lhe race lo lhe norlh was lhe mosl difficull fighl il had as yel encounlered. The doughboys were driving up main roads, and leaving lheir flanks and rear wide open. Every displacemenl by lhe arlillery developed inlo a fire fighl. Somelimes balleries were cul off complelely. Everyone had a hell of a lime. Two displacemenls a day became a daily evenl. Gunshol on lhe way! was echoed for lhe lasl lime in lhe Ruhr Pockel on lhe lblh of April. The Boche were surrendering in droves. The greal ballle of lhe Ruhr Pockel was over. The Eighlh Division had played lhe leading role. ll led all olher divisions, splil lhe pockel in lwo, and caplured a large percenlage of lhe prisoners laken. All ranks, lired bul flushed wilh viclory, cleaned lheir Lu- gers, P38s, Mausers and whalnol, lraded cameras around, and wailed for lhe nexl round. The ballle was over, bul lhe work was nol. The greal induslrial area of lhe Ruhr lay helpless. The Division was called upon lo govern a large segmenl. "Gunshol" was ordered lo assisl, and was given an area surrounding lhe Cily of Lennep. The Ballalion moved al once, arriving lhere on lhe Zlsl of April. Bul lhis sorl of lhing didn'l lasl long. On lhe 28lh of April, "Gunshol" was on lhe road again, heading norlheasl lo ioin lhe Brilish Second Army, and lake parl in lhe ballles of Norlhern Germany. "Gunshol" closed inlo ils assembly area in lhe Brilish seclor on lhe 29lh of April. The march was unevenlful, due lo lhe fine work of lhe Ballalion Molor Seclion. The wealher was cold and wel, as usual. The silualion looked good. German resislance was on ils lasl legs, and lhe Division prepared for ils lasl fighl. Came lhe 2nd of May, and even wilh 25-mile iumps, lhe Ballalion couldn'l keep up lo lhe infanlry. Schwerin fell, and lhe Division's objeclives were reached. The Boche prisoners were clullering up lhe roads so much lhal "Gunshol" had a rough lime lo gel lo ils posilion area al Gorries. Al I500 B hours, May 3, l945, lhe Rus- sians were conlacled. Wilh lhe Brilish lo lhe norlh and wesl, Americans lo lhe soulh, and lhe Russians lo lhe easl, lhe war was over for lhe Eighlh Division and lhe 28lh Field Arlillery. GUN- SHOT-ON THE WAY! would sound no more in Europe. 1I3I:III FIELD HTILLEIIY B TTTILIU TU v1l:'ruHY WITH "nuPHE11" June I, l94l, marks The birfhday of The 43rd Field ArTilIery BaT- Talion.

This was The HurTgen ForesT. December l7Th and The breakfhrough of The Germans in The Ardennes found us living in log huTs in The middle of The foresTg and we remained in This posiTion, proTecTing The flank againsT counTeraTTacks. We held fasT, unTil The enemy was Thrown back, and we were ready To cross The Roer River. In order To accomplish This, The BaTTalion Took posiTion oppo- siTe The Town of Dureng and The Germans knowing whaT was abouT To happen, shelled conTinuousIy. The aTTack was planned and afTer one of The mosT poTenT arTillery preparaTions of The war, The in- fanTry crossed The river. The obiecT: The Rhineland and Cologne. The daTe: 23 February I945. In supporT of The I2lsT lnfanTry RegimenT we moved forward day and nighT againsT sTrong German resisfance. Neifher planes nor Tanks, arTillery or infanTry could sTop us. And finally Cologne Tell, The Rhine had been reached. Crossing The Rhine, our iniTiaI obiecfive was To Take posifions along The line of The Sieg River, and Then To cross The river driv- ing norTh unTil conTacT could be made wiTh The forces driving down To meeT us. Reaching The river, plans were made for crossing iT, in order To Take The ciTy Siegen iTseIf. And here, The enemy Tried every Trick in his book To sTop us. Confinuous counTer-aTTacks, and in- fiITraTion of SS men inTo our lines were unsuccessful, however, and once again we sTarTed on one of our races, Ieapfrog jumping by BaTTery all The Time, clearing our posiTion of snipers, and Taking more prisoners Than we could handle. There was no way of sTop- ping us, ThaT The Germans knew, and The link-up wiTh The norThern forces, was finally effecfed. Again we were relieved, and anoTher long Trip broughT us To The locaTion of whaT was To be our IasT baTTle againsT The almos+ defeaTed Germany. Our commander, Field Marshal Monfgomery, of The BriTish Second Army, To which The XVIII Corps, Airborne, wiTh us un-der iTs command, was aTTached. PosiTion was Taken up along The Elbe River on April 29, so close To The river ThaT The building housing our command posT served as BaTTaIion observaTion posT aT The same Time. We were in direcT supporT of The 505Th ParaTroop RegimenT, a componenT of The 82nd Airborne Division. The infanTry crossed The river in assaulT boafs, and as soon as The engineers had compleTed The bridge, we crossed: on The firsT day of May, I945, AfTer Two rapid dispIacemenTs, in The supporT of The I3Th lnfanTry RegimenT, we reached The posiTion from which we fired our IasT rounds in com- baT. IT was Tired by BaTTery C aT I930 hours of The same day. The enemy defenses crumbled, and locaTed in The viciniTy of VieTz, NorThern Germany, we esfablished roadblocks, and Took counTIess prisoners, herding Them inTo a sTockade on The grounds of a German airporT nearby. And There iT was ThaT VE Day over- Took us. The BaTTIe of CenTraI Europe was over. Germany defeaTed. Relieved by The BriTish, we moved To a new locaTion in The viciniTy of Kassel, Cenfral Germany. And from There, on June I4, I945, we lefT for Le Havre, PorT of Embarkafion. This Time geTTing ready for anoTher sea voyage was a pleasure. For The goal was home and a 30-day furlough. Our boaT, The "General Squier," lefT porT The 30Th day of June and on July 8, we sighfed land. Go1d's counTry had been reached. The resT is easily Told. HampTon Road PorT of Embarkafion near Norfolk, Va., Camp PaTrick Henry and home! FT. Leonard Wood, Mo., was assigned To us as reassembly sTaTion. BuT V-J Day came, and wiTh iT discharge sTarTed. IT was a long Trek, and a very cosTIy one. A ToTal of I27,399 rounds of I05-mm. Howifzer ammunifion was fired. OuT of 5I2 Officers and EnlisTed Men, 5I received The Purple HearT, II of Them posfhumously. Nine members of The baTTaIion received The Silver STar, I9 Air Medals and 85 Bronze STar Medals were awarded. MosT men wore four Bronze BaTTIe ParTicipaTion STars on Their E.T.O. ribbons. 45TH FIELD HTILLEHY B TT LIU IJIJMBAT HISTUHY nr "nHEENBAl:1i" "Greenback" landed on UPah Beach, Normandy, on July 4, spenP Phe nighP in bivouac near ruined MonPebourg, and nexP day became Phe firsP elemenP of iPs combaP Peam Po enPer com- baP, suppor'Ping Phe 90Ph Division from posiPions bePween Vinde- fonPaine and PrePoP. We were iniPiaPed quickly. By 8 July Phe 28Ph InfanPry was ready for Phe aPPack againsP Le Haye du PuiPs, and "Greenback" assumed Phe mission of direcP supporP which, for Phe nexP Pen monPhs, iP was scarcely ever Po lay aside. On I4 July began an eleven day period of preparaPion for Phe push PhaP was Po break Phe German ring of sfeel around our Nor- mandy bridgehead. From posiPions aP Laulne Phe 45Ph waPched Phe bombing of SP. Lo and supporPed Phe doughs as Phey spear- headed Phe VII Corps aPPack againsP Phe German Ay River de- fense line in savage fighfing. By Phe 27Ph, Jerry was fleeing, and we began a period of rapid movemenf, rolling Phrough Coufances and Avranches ouP of Normandy and info BriPPany, ending up in Phe beaufiful counPryside iusP souPh of Rennes. We Pook off on Phe hundred-odd mile dash Po our new secPor of operafions, Phe greaP French porP of BresP. We were Pold PhaP Phere were abouP l5,000 Germans holed up here in Phe ciPy and harbor area. When we goP Phrough counPing Phe lasP prisoner a monPh laPer, we found PhaP Phere were some 40-odd Phousand KrauPs, many of Phem paraProopers and SS Proopers, crack Proops of Phe Nazi army led by Phe fanafical LP. Gen. Ramcke, conqueror of CrePe. "Greenback" arrived on Phe scene in advance of mosP of Phe division, and became, wiPh eIemenPs of Phe SixPh Armored Division and Phe FirsP BaP'PaIion, 28Ph InfanPry, parP of Phe famous "Brassiere Boys." who conPained BresP. AfPer Phe fighPing af BresP had gone inPo Phe mopping-up sPage, we moved sevenPy miles around Phe harbor Po Phe Crozon Penin- sula Po Phe souPh. Here CombaP Team 28 drew Phe mosP difficuIP mission of Phe Division, 'Phe aPPack againsP Phe high ground of Phe norPhern half of 'Phe peninsula, including 'Phe imporPanP airporP secPion. German arPillery fire here was Phe hePPes+ PhaP we had hiP Po daPe. We paid Jerry back aP Phe raPe of over 2000 rounds a day. By Phe l8Ph, Ramcke had surrendered and BresP and iPs harbor were ours. Affer a brief "resP" period, we performed a four-day, 700-mile moPor march Phrough Rennes, CharPres, Paris, and Sedan Po Phe Piny Duchy of Luxembourg, where CT28 Pook over from Phe FiPPh Armored Division Phe defense of a 32,000 yard fronP along Phe high ground facing Phe German border and Phe Siegfried Line. AfPer six pIeasanP weeks in Luxembourg, we shoved off one cold November day for Phe dread Hur'Pgen ForesP, in Germany. Here for aImosP Phree monPhs we lived and foughP in Phe same liPPle area in day afPer day of concenPraPed misery. The mud, Phe cold, Phe Pree burs'Ps, Phe "S" mines, and Phe greaPesP concenPraPion of German arPillery PhaP we ever encounfered Pook Pheir sPeady Poll. We fired more Phan ever before: for hour afPer hour Phe howifzers boomed away aP Phe maximum allowable raPe. One day Phe baP- Palion fired over 3,000 rounds in Phis vasP arPillery duel. And Jerry usually rePurned round for round. On 6 February we IefP Hur'Pgen and moved a few miles norPh Po prepare for Phe coming Roer River crossing operaPion. From baPPery posiPions in Birgel and forward posiPions in Lendersdorf, on Phe river's edge, we sweaPed ouP Phe flood sPage of Phe river and Jerry's morPar and arPillery fire. AP Iasf, on 23 February, came Phe aPPack. In iPs parP of Phe 45-minuPe preparaPion, from 0245 Po 0330, "Greenback" fired aImos'P I,400 rounds and iPs fires for Phe resP of Phe day were so inPense PhaP again we passed Phe 3,000 mark. The river crossing iPseIf was rough. 'Many of our men wiPh Phe infanfry had Po swim for iP: some were wounded and one lieu- PenanP was Paken prisoner. BuP once we goP rolling on Phe oPher side, we advanced in a series of briIIianP nighP aPPacks and day- IighP dispIacemenPs righP down Phe main highway Po Cologne and Phe Rhine. AfPer a shorP "resP" period and a reIaPiveIy inacPive period in which we defended Phe wesP bank of Phe Rhine, we moved on March 29 across Phe Rhine and inPo Phe so-called Ruhr pockeP, in which an esPimaPed quarPer-million Germans were Prapped in Phe largesP double envelopmenf in hisPory. The PighPing here was characferized by exPreme mobiIiPy, rapid movemenf, and a series of end-around plays PhaP dazzled Phe enemy. For Phe arPillery iP enPaiIed conPinuous reconnaissance, ofPen wiPh Phe mosP advance infanPry echelons and somefimes in areas previously unenPered by friendly Proops. "Greenback" never funcPioned more smooPhly Phan now. Three displacemenfs a day were common, and 30 Po 45 minufes afPer Phe reconnaissance parPies Pook off Po look aP a new area, Phe baPPalion would be in Phe new posiPion, firing. On I6 April, from posiPions around Niedersprockhovel, we fired our lasP round of Phe war, for a PoPaI of I2I,I28 combaP rounds. As soon as Phe Ruhr fighf was over, we Pook over miliPary con- Prol of Pwo large areas of Phe Ruhr Valley, Phe firsP around APPen- dorn and Phe second around Hennef. BuP Phis was shorP-lived. AP 0355 in Phe morning of 28 April, we began a record breaking 330- mile, 20-hour pracPicalIy non-sPop march Po Graulingen, in Phe Elbe plain. Now parP of Phe BriPish Second Army, we crossed Phe Elbe on I May and advanced rapidly and wiPhouP opposiPion al- mosP Po Phe BalPic Sea. Our lasP combaP posiPion was Phe liPPle Mecklenburg Pown of Hoorf, info which we rolled on Phe afPer- noon of 2 May. As we enPered Phe Pown from Phe wesP, Phe firsP Iarge group of surrendering Germans enPered iP from Phe easP, and aP once we became a baPPalion of miIiPary policemen. On 2 May and Phe succeeding Pwo days we disarmed, impounded, and processed in excess of 7,000 Germans, including Phe Commander of Phe OsP See Division. V-E Day found "Greenback" wearily guarding iPs prisoner of war enclosure aP HoorP. In Pen monPhs of combaP "Greenback" IosP I5 officers and men killed and I26 wounded. IPs members were awarded I9 Silver SPars, 88 Bronze SPars andiCIusPers, 26 Air Medals and Clusfers, and five Soldiers' Medals. IP Praveled in Phe neighborhood of 3,000 miles from baPPery posiPion Pc baPPery posiPion and made 80 dis- pIacemenPs. IP awarded Phree baPPIefieId commissions and had Phree of iPs men Paken prisoner by Phe enemy. IP Pook over 8,000 prisoners. This is a record which few arPillery baPPaIions can ap- proach and of which "Greenback" men are profoundly proud. 55TH FIELD HTILLEHY B TT LIU IN THE ETI1 WITH "BIflLlJl?.NHlIlJ" FirsP men oP Phe 56Ph ArPiIlery BaPPalion Po hiP France wenP over Phe side oP Pheir ships, down rope ladders and inPo landing craPP which chugged away Po Phe Normandy shore and UPah Beach on Phe evening of 3 July I944. AP II minuPes Po 6, "0549" according Po Army Pime, on Phe morning of July 6, Phe No. I gun of BaPPery C belched Plame, 30 odd pounds of sPeel and TNT arched Poward Phe German lines, and Phe 56Ph was "oPPicially" in Phe war! ThaP was Phe beginning oP a sPruggle in Europe which was noP Po end unPil Phe guns of "Goldenrod" had Pired no less Phan I44,966 rounds. AP PirsP in supporP oP Phe 90Ph Division, Phe 56Ph reverPed Po Division conProI and wheeled inPo posiPion behind Phe doughboys o'F 'Phe I2IsP InPanPry RegimenP on Phe nighP o'F July 7, ready Po supporP 'Phe Division's PirsP big acPion, 'Phe aPPaclc on La Haye du PuiPs. IP was while occupying Phe posiPions near BresP Prom July I8 Po July 26, as plans and preparaPions were made Por a new D-Day and 'Phe crossing oP 'Phe Ay River, PhaP Phe PirsP enemy planes appeared. On July 25, Phe men wenP baclc Po Pheir Piring Phe nexP day Por Phe assaulP crossing oP Phe Ay River, Phe Pinal brealcPhrough in Normandy and a raP-race, goose-chase Por more Phan a weelc in an aPPempP Po caPch Pleeing enemy Porces. While oPher division uniPs wenP on Po Rennes, Phe capiPal of BriPPany, Phe 56Ph, operaPing wiPh 'Phe I2IsP CombaP Team, was ordered Po ioin Phe 83rd Division in iPs assaulP on SP. Malo and Dinard. Advancing norPhward Prom Dinan, PirsP enemy resisPance was meP near PleurPuiP, souPh oP Dinard, on Phe 7Ph of AugusP. A'fPer Dinard, Phe baPPalion had a Pew days Po iPselP souPh of Dinan 'For reorganizaPion, Phen reioined Phe division Por Phe aPPack on Phe porP oP BresP. In general supporP when Phe drive opened on AugusP 24, Phe 56Ph wenP inPo more aggressive acPion on Phe nighP of Phe 3IsP when Phe I2IsP InPanPry relieved Phe 28Ph Regi- menP. The advance was conPinued unPil SepPember I0, and on Sep- Pember II Phe heavier weapons were adiusPed on Phe huge walls surrounding Phe old BresP PorPress. Two days laPer, having Purned Phe iob oP clearing ouP Phe ciPy proper over Po anoPher division, Phe baPPalion Pound iPselP in new posiPions near Argel, on Phe Crozon Peninsula, iusP souPh oP BresP. WiPh Phe doughboys unable Po gain, Phe emphasis wenP over Po Phe arPillery, and observers puP Phe 56Ph's guns Po worlc on Phe iob of reducing sProng poinPs which were holding up Phe advance. DevasPaPing e'FPecPs oP Phe Perrific Pire were learned early Phe nexP day when our Proops aPPaclced behind anoPher heavy prepa- raPion, broke Phe enemy resisPance and made a Phree-mile advance Phrough a Phoroughly baPPered secPor. The division had reassembled near Le Trehou, BriPPany, on Sep- Pember 22, and Pive days laPer was on a long march across France, wiPh overnighP sPops aP Rennes, CharPres and Suippes, inPo Bel- gium and down inPo Luxembourg where posiPions were occupied near Eppeldorf. Up Porward, Phe inPanPry was again in Phe line, holding a broad PronP along Phe Our and Sauer Rivers. Across Phe river was a new sighP: Germany! AlPhough ammuniPion conPinued Po be supplied only in drib- IePs, Phe baPPalion Pired iPs IimiPed amounPs wiPh Pelling accuracy unPil hurry-up orders on November I9 broughP in anoPher uniP Po Palme over, whereupon Phe 56Ph enPered inPo iPs mosP biPPer days oP Phe war, Phe HurPgen ForesP, in Germany. The HurPgen ForesP was wePg iP was muddy: iP was cold: iP was miserable. On November 30 HurPgen Pell, and when one baPPalion of Phe I3Ph RegimenP wenP on Po Kleinhau, Phe 56Ph gave direcP supporP Po PhaP aPPaclK. While Phe in'FanPry spenP Prom December 2 Po 22 cleaning ouP sProng poinPs wesP of Phe Roer River, Phe baPPalion lrepP busy wiPh numerous Pires, and was placed in direcP supporP of Phe Second Ranger BaPPalion on December 7-8 in an aPPaclc Po capPure Hill 400, souPheasP oP BergsPein. In posiPion near Birgel, Phe 56Ph waiPed wiPh everyone else Por Phe waPers of Phe Roer River Po subside-waiPed and planned Por Phe massive iump-oPP which came Phe morning oP February 23. BuP an imporPanP evenP already had Palren place on Phe aPPerhoon oP February I6 when BaPPery C, which had Pired Phe PirsP round in France, boosPed ouP Phe IO0.000Ph round, Phe PargeP being an observaPion posP. On Phe I4Ph oP March, Phe baPPalion moved inPo posiPion in DuisdorP, again assuming direcP supporP oP Phe I2IsP which had Palten over a holding posiPion on Phe Rhine. Few missions were Pired as Phe ammuniPion alloPmenP was low. Six days laPer, Phe movemenP orders came again, Phis Pime Po Palre posiPions norPh oP Cologne, sPaying Phere unPil relieved on March 29. Ahead lay Phe crossing of Phe Rhine. On March 30, Phe baPPalion displaced iusP souPh of Bonn and crossed Phe Rhine on Phe General Hodges Bridge, going inPo Germany proper where Phe Remagen bridgehead had been sPead- ily expanding Por a Ii+PIe more Phan Phree weeks. The FirsP and NinPh Armies had iusP made conPacP aP Pader- born, sealing oPP Phe indusPriaIly rich Ruhr, and Phe EighPh Divi- sion immediaPely became Phe spearheading Porce Prom Phe souPh Po reduce and spliP Phe "poclceP." The I2IsP conPinued iPs rapid advance, Phrough NePphen inPo Musen, LiPPlePield, iMiPPel Neger, Iehne, Spielwiggeg oPP one map onPo anoPher, one reconnaissance scarcely would be compIePed bePore Phe inPanPry's advance required anoPher.

On Phe morning oP April I7, all organized resisPance in Phe Ruhr poclreP ceased. From PhaP Pime unPil Phe 26Ph oP April, Phe baPPalion was on mili- Pary governmenP duPy iusP ouPside oP Mulheim, across Phe Rhine Prom Cologne. WiPh Phe EighPh Division aPPached Po Phe XVIII Airborne Corps, Phe baPPalion moved norPh on April 27 Po a bivouac in Wriedel, near Uelzen, awaiPing plans Por Phe aPPaclc across Phe Elbe wiPh Phe BriPish Second Army. On Phe 3OPh, new posiPions were occupied near Bleclcede, where Phe bridgehead had been esPablished, and Phe I2IsP ln'fanPry wenP across Po expand Phe bridgehead laPe PhaP nighP. RighP be- hind Phem wenP Phe 56Ph, and Phe baPPeries were in posiPion Po supporP Phe aPPaclc which jumped oPP early on Phe morning of May I. The complePe collapse oP Phe Germans in Phe norPh was evidenP even before Phe big surrender oP May 3, and V-E Day, coming on May 8 while Phe baPPalion was engrossed in handling displaced persons and liberaPed prisoners of war and guarding ins+aIIa+ions, came as an anPi-climax.
