Documentazione – Documentation

Welcome to Travel Guide Press. It is a new guidebook describing and providing directions to over one hundred World War II sites in Italy, including museums, monuments, cemeteries, and battlefields. The tours in each chapter focus on a particular city or region, following the Allied and German armies as they battled from southern to northern Italy.

My grandfather was with the 34th Infantry Division, 133rd Regiment during World War II in Italy from December 1943 to November 1945. In my quest for information about my grandfather’s experiences with the 34th Infantry Division, 133rd Regiment during World War II in Italy from December 1943 to November 1945, I found I had accumulated a vast amount of resources and the organization of those items was greatly needed. As I put together this website it was originally not intended to be public; but I realized in surfing the web that I had collected material that was unavailable on the web. So I made it public. www.34thinfantry.com

WW2 US Medical Research Centre The “WW2 US Medical Research Centre” started out as a private venture between two WW2 US medical collectors and re-enactors living in Europe. Using a variety of sources, primarily original WW2 documents, we were able to create an on-line database containing the list of all WW2 US Medical Department Item Numbers and their descriptions. We soon realised that this database was an invaluable research tool for anyone interested in the period. As a result, the database was further expanded, and the basic project grew to encompass a number of other resources for both collectors and re-enactors to use for their research.

Remembering a Fallen Coloradan on Veterans Day

The Cars, Tanks and Airplanes of WWII – una collezione di link sui principali mezzi usati dagli alleati durante òa Seconda Guerra Mondiale – A collection of links about vheicles, tanks and airplane. Whether in the air or on the ground, the cars, tanks, and airplanes used during World War II had a great impact on a nation’s ability to successfully campaign against the enemy. As Joseph Stalin said, “The war was decided by engines and octane.”

Important People of World War II – Plenty of information about World War II can be found in books and on the Web, including facts about battles, maps of territories and their control, and memorials to those who lost their lives. But one key thing to remember is that a war isn’t fought by borders or governments or tanks: It’s fought by people. This link is suggested by Bella, she found it during a webquest on WW2.  It’s a list of important people of WWII.

Rievocazione – Reenactors

Il 514th Q.M. Truck Regiment Re-enactment Group nasce dalla collaborazione di un gruppo di amici che ha cominciato alcuni anni fa raccogliendo veicoli militari ed equipaggiamenti americani della II Guerra mondiale. Nel luglio 2004 al Beltring War & Peace Show hanno avuto l’idea di mettere su un nuovo gruppo di re-enacting dedicato al 514th Q.M. Truck Regiment e ricordare di come come questo reggimento abbia rifornito l’esercito di Patton con carburante, munizioni, vettovaglie e di quanto altro fosse necessario durante l’avanzata attraverso la Francia del nord, l’opperazione conosciuta come “The Red Ball Express”
The 514th Q.M. Truck Regiment Reenactment Group is a group of friends who started collecting U.S. military vehicles and equipment of World War II some years ago. In July 2004 at the Beltring War & Peace Show we came up with the idea to start a new WWII reenactment group to show the organization, hard work and bravery of the men of the 514th Quartermaster Truck Regiment, how they supplied Patton’s army with fuel, ammo, rations and just about every thing else that was needed in their advance across Northern Franc. This operation was known as “The Red Ball Express”
