Journal Of Company A, 702nd Tank Battalion "Red Devils"

 By Multiple Authors, Painstakingly Transcribed By Lela And Howard Eitel

Edited/Converted To HTML By Terry D. Janes

 

NOTES ON COMPANY DIARIES AND ON THE DIARY OF COMPANY "A" 702nd.  TANK BN.

 

Source of books; Some form of business or organizational Journal, entries hand written on the reverse side of the pages, sometimes in ink, sometimes in pencil, in both longhand script and upper and lower case printing.

 

"A" Co. entries; we know not who the several authors of this Diary are.  Perhaps someone reading this Diary can shed some light on this mystery.  A list of the individual writings, with dates of entries, follows.  The study of the different scripts resulted in this list. Whomever the scribes were, they made the entries each day, on the "spot" of the actions recorded and while the events of each day were fresh in the minds of the participants.  It is this fact that makes these Diaries (in the opinion of your typist) the most detailed, accurate and important documents of the history of the  "RED DEVILS".  As such they should be in the library, of each of our members.
