    Need information on the Lost Battalion in 1944?


      Does anyone have information on the Lost Battalion being saved by the 442nd regiment in the fall of 1944 during WW2? Working on National History Day project but I'm having trouble finding primary sources, which I need 20 of.

          Dear Mr. Brodersen,

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

          We searched the series titled World War II Operations Reports, 1940 - 1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1905-1981 (Record Group 407) and located reports of operations and history files of the 36th Infantry Division; histories and operation reports of the 141st Infantry Regiment; and operation reports and unit journals of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Battalions of the 141st Infantry Regiment during October 1944. In the same series, we also located histories, operation reports, and journals of the 442nd Infantry Regiment for October 1944.

          For access to and copies of these records, please contact the National Archives in College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research for your National History Day project!
