ATTACHMENTS:

The 756th Tank Battalion was attached to the 3rd Infantry Division for most of the Second World War.  However, as an
"independent" tank battalion, the unit was sometimes detached and reassigned to other commands as determined by shifting
battlefield conditions.  The most notable reattachment for the 756th Tank Battalion occurred during the Battle of Cassino in early
1944.  For this engagement, the 756th Tank Battalion was assigned to the 34th Infantry Division.  During the march on Rome in
May of 1944, the 756th Tank Battalion attached to various French Colonial units, and during the drive on German in February
1945, the battalion was attached for two weeks to the 103rd Infantry Division.

The following is a listing of attachments for the 756th Tank Battalion--including all divisional, provisional, corps, and army
attachments.  The list was transcribed from a 756th Tank Battalion Headquarters document dated May 8th, 1945 and titled:
"Attachments of the 756th Tank Battalion."  A copy of this document was obtained from Greig Lewis, son of French Lewis.  
French Lewis was one of the original officers assigned to the Battalion in June 1941, served most of the war as Company
Commander of A and C Companies, and finished the war as the Battalion S-3 (Operations Officer).
