Partial Index for The 27th Infantry Division in World War II By Capt. Edmund G. Love
Index Prepared by
June M. Hoyt
Posted Here with permission

X

This does not list military units, as such. Places whose names are chapter headings are usually not listed in index. Some place names are listed the first time they appear, primarily for identification (e.g., Charan Kanoa, 115 ff).

This index was compiled for my personal use, to locate names of individuals. In this respect, I hope it is complete, but I have caught many errors. Undoubtedly there are more. If you find errors or omissions, I would be glad to hear from you, because they are easily corrected. (The information is stored in a computer.) Errors are most likely to appear in designating the unit to which a man belonged. As the combat situation became confused, I often got lost in Love's narrative, and could not tell who was in what unit. Sometimes I resolved it by showing only the battalion. (I hope I managed to get the right regiment, at least!) I would be glad to have clarification where possible.

Unfortunately, at the beginning of this project it did not occur to me to list military units as separate items. That is an omission which I regret—but not enough to start over!
