World War 2 involvement of Company K 7th Inf Reg third Division?

It would be difficult to provide a detailed history of Company K to include its troop movements, battles, casualties and such. The 3rd Infantry Divison served in Sicily and Italy, including time at Anzio Beach. After the fall of Rome in June 1944, they participated in the invasion of Southern France where they fought into Germany. There is a detailed history of the 3rd Infantry Regiment that was published soon after the war. Maybe you can obtain a copy through an inter-library loan. Or you can purchase it from the publisher; Nashville Press. "History of The Third Infantry Division in World War II" by Donald G. Taggart. Battery Press, 1945
