Welcome to History Hub,
"Trailblazers: The Story of the 70th Infantry Division" is a small booklet covering the history of the 70th Infantry Division. This booklet is one of the series of G.I. Stories published by the Stars & Stripes in Paris in 1944-1945.

HI Susan, just to add to the responses, there is a website for the 70th Infantry Division Association (https://www.trailblazersww2.org/index.html) which also has some information about the 725th Field Artillery, including what looks like a sailing manifest with a roster for each battery (likely the return to the states). Hope this is of some help. joan
Dear Ms. Small,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The full World War II order of battle for the 70th Infantry Division, including its nickname, is located in the U.S. Army Center of Military History Order of Battle of the US Army - WWII - ETO: 70th INFANTRY DIVISION.
We hope this is helpful.
thanks to all of you for this great information. This will really help me with my research on my dad's service.
