Hello friends,

I am researching the US-Para actions during Operation Husky. Does anybody have (or know about) a detailed map showing locations, positions and geographical features (especially contour lines) for the battle of Biazza-Ridge?
Most maps on the net or in the books are not detailed enough to make sense or just false. Even google-earth can't help me, because the ridge seems to be just a slight rise in the ground.

The same for Cpt. Ed Sayre's first actions after landing. I just can't pinpoint the spot and location of the winery with the six pillboxes north of his designated DZ….

Thank you,

When I was assigned to the 82d I was in the 505th PIR the brigade HQ had several maps on the walls. The best thing was always talking to the veterans who came in each year for All American week.

But none of that will help you.

But maybe someone here knows somebody with connections to the 82nd….
