752nd DUI

752nd Tank Battalion
in World War II

752nd Tank Battalion Insignia

The men of the 752nd Tank Battalion distinguished themselves in some of the most difficult combat in the Italian Campaign. They recorded the highest number of consecutive combat days for any battalion in the entire Fifth Army (341), and became the only independent tank battalion in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations to receive the Presidential Unit Citation. This website is respectfully dedicated to the men of the 752nd Tank Battalion, who are more than justified in their pride.
