Introduction, not a part of the official history

   The document sections which are linked to this 'cover page' are the edited transcriptions (see Note below) of an official field report. It was provided to the Association by Ray Rudolph, a veteran of the 135th Infantry Regiment, who prepared the sections up through Cassino while serving in the Regimental S-3 Section.

   Another soldier later prepared the sections Anzio Beachhead through Gothic Line, but was captured on the 1944-1945 Winter Line. It is at that point in time that this transcription ends.

   The field report project seems to have been dropped at that point, but raw material to bring the Regiment to the French border in May 1945, then the Yugoslav border in July 1945, and finally the United States in November 1945, ought to be found at the US National Archives facility in College Park MD.
