568th Signal A.W. Battalion Unit History
pdf of the 568th history, from formation to deactivation

A pdf document containing the 568th's official unit history has been added. It can be read by selecting "Army" from the main menu, then "568" from the list of units, and finally selecting the "History" link. This unit history was obtained from the Air Force Historical Research Center in microfilm format, printed and then scanned. Some pages and/or items were unreadable due to the poor quality of the conversion to microfilm. Therefore, the document is not 100% complete.

Anti-Aircraft Artillery Operations 6th Army

A pdf document containing the operations of the 6th Army in the Pacific during WWII had been added. File is located in the Documents section.
