I gotcha ... I found some good info on the battle and was wondering if some of it might be of use to you, but you probably already have it.

I actually fought with 2nd ACR and 1 ID during the ground war, so it tweaks my interest as well.

**This is a pretty good account.


http://www.history.army.mil/books/www/www8.htm

Pretty inclusive for combat elements of 7th corps and 18th airborne corps. (Good Read)

http://www.history.army.mil/search.html

This link has a number of things one of them is a PDF but not exactly what is being looked for.

I've read those, they have some good accounts ... they're accurate from my perspective.

I love when the accounts are accurate. I enjoy the actual real documents and hearing what other units were doing while we were doing our own stuff.
