Thanks for visiting!
The link above will download onto your computer the Excel 2010 file created from the Morning Reports of the 29th Infantry Division from Jun 1944 to May 1945.
Please note that these records were originally recorded by company clerks, sometimes under duress, on roughly 4x8 inch multi-page forms. After the war these morning reports were converted to microfiche and stored. Some records were lost. Others were extremely difficult to read due to degradation. Research analyst friends of Ralph Windler, Brian Siddall (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and Norm Richards (email@example.com
), acquired copies of each company's Morning Report from June 6, 1944 to May 1945. Ralph then, to the best of his ability, read and transcribed each report line item into spreadsheets. At each stage (company clerk, microfiche conversion and transcription to spreadsheet) errors can and certainly did occur. Hence this record of events of the 29th division should not be considered the final word. Ralph has donated paper and electronic versions of all the Morning Reports to the 29th division museum in Baltimore, Maryland. Note that an actual Morning Report contains other valuable information including the approximate location of the company. A clean example is shown above.
This spreadsheet exceeds the number of rows available for versions of Excel earlier than 2010. Therefore, if you cannot see all the names through "Z" it may be because you have opened the file in a version of excel prior to 2010.
