Note:

The unofficial history of the Seventy-Sixth Infantry Division "We ripened fast" was scanned and prepared (inclusive of necessary corrections of geographical concepts and place-names), compiled and designed for the following presentation on the internet by Ulrich Koch.

) 2001 by Ulrich Koch, Berlin, Germany

) 2001 by 76th Infantry Division Association

The web design follows the original, only marginal changes were made for the presentation on the internet.  So the origin size of photos, draws and maps were changed.  Also several fonts used in the original were standardized for the internet.
The spelling of European and particularly German place names were checked and corrected. German umlauts are written as follows: a-umlaut = ä / u-umlaut = ü / o-umlaut = ö .
