Does anyone know of a reference for WWII squads down to the individual soldier and his weapons?

not sure if you do the yahoo group thing, but there is a very active TO&E group in yahoo groups. They have TONS and TONS of stuff in their files section, I was researching some French Indochina War for a project some time ago and they had a wealth of info regarding troops, weapons, etc. They have several files on WWII and the members are quick to reply and answer any query you might post. Gordon Rottman, who had done a bunch of Osprey series is a frequent contributor.

Knowing you are another "Old Corps" veteran of my era, there is plenty online for the Marine Corps from squad all way up to division. I can't remember the site, but I found it Googling stuff for the Pacific.

Hope this helps.

#1 – Look for a copy of the book: "The Gamer's Guide To WWII Small Unit Organizations And TO&Es" from Battle Honors/Quality Castings. I got a copy a few years ago for about $10 USD to $15. USD

#2 – Also the listings compiled and posted on "Bayonet Strength" are available here:


#3 – The Nafziger Collections are great:

I posted order of battle information for most belligerents on the Combat Patrol rules page as free downloads. See the Web page: link

I second "The Gamer's Guide To WWII Small Unit Organizations And TO&Es" from Battle Honors/Quality Castings. Excellent detail -- even down to the individual weapons of vehicle drivers.
