Primary and Secondary Sources on the 506th

author: Tim Lehotsky

Primary Sources

For those with little to no experience in historical research, Tom Kelly with the 100th ID Reenacting Group has written an excellent primer on conducting Primary Research (click here). Between the United States Army Heritage Center and the National Archives at College Park, there is a plethora of information available on World War II. Specifically for the 101st, the Army Heritage Center contains both the George Koskimaki Collection and the Richard D. Winters Collection as well as a multitude of Veterans Survey submitted by members of the 506th. The National Archives at College Park contains many of the official wartime documents produced by the 101st and 506th. Many a copy of training schedules, equipment load plans, operations orders and intelligence reports are stored here. Both of these archives are free to the public. The list below is by no means an extensive list of primary sources, but rather meant as a sampling of what is out there.

Secondary Sources
Secondary Sources serve as a wonderful way to quickly learn about a subject without getting into the time consuming process of conducting primary source research; however, secondary sources often contain minor (or even major) inaccuracies and unfactual statements. The sources below are a relatively exhaustive list of published material on the 506th without distinction to credibility or fact. The best place to start are Mark Bando’s books as they provide a strong balance of text and period photographs at the best value. While not recommend as a place to start, the 1st and 3rd Battalion sections offer different insight on the same events that many within the Regiment experienced. For specific events such as the Normandy campaign or Bastogne, this list contains only a sampling of literature on subjects such as these with many additional titles in print.
