Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Couldn't find if this had been posted here before.

    This LINK will take you to a series of WWII after-action reports mostly at the company and battalion level. Included is Ronald Speirs (of Band of Brothers fame) 33-page report (pdf) on the actions of Easy Co from 11-13 June 1944.

    Good reading for the WWII buffs.

    Watch this link...my intensely jack, nay blase security software roused itself from torpor, scratched its nuts and yawned, to scream warnings about the security certificate on this site...

    Yes, it'll screw your wife and steal your beer.

    It's a .mil US Army site which for some reason do that certificate thingy often. Never figured out why.

    Very good stuff there, thanks for the link.

    And no need to worry about the site certificate problem in this case.

    I just finished: Adams, Jonathan E. Jr. MAJ, "Operations of "A" Company, 508th Parachute Infantry, 82nd Airborne Division, Near Rencheaux, Belgium, 22-25 December 1944 (Ardennes Campaign)

    Very riveting stuff.
