US Army in Northern Ireland, 1941-1945

This collection of documents was compiled by the Historical Resources Branch, US Army Center of Military History, during the period March-May 1996, in conjunction with the Ulster Historical Society from Northern Ireland. It is intended to serve as an example of the types of information which can be extracted from unique resources held by the Center, and was undertaken only as a demonstration project. The Center does not have the personnel nor the mission to compile other such works, but researchers are free to conduct such projects by visiting the Center.

The collection consists of compilations of raw data assembled from materials on hand at the Center, and has not been verified against the original World War II-era records transferred from Army custody to the National Archives and Records Administration. The principal sources of information housed at the Center that were used to compile the documents are the manuscript historical monographs in the collections of the Historical Resources Branch; the Unit Data Cards and European Theater of Operations Station Cards in the collections of the Organizational History Branch; and the published histories in the Center's library. Researchers should treat these documents as preliminary surveys and use them as guides to conduct further research into the operational records in the custody of the National Archives and Records Administration's Archives II facility in College Park, Maryland, and especially in the definitive Morning Reports submitted down to the company level on a daily basis by each of the units. The Morning Reports are housed at the National Personnel Records Center, 9700 Page Boulevard, St. Louis, Missouri 63132-5000.
