Overview
-

This is the combat history of the U.S. Army's oldest armored regiment, a legendary unit whose story began in the mud of the Western Front in 1918. But it was during World War II that the 66th Armored Regiment came into its own as one of the U.S.'s premier tank formations. As part of the 2nd Armored Division--the famed "Hell on Wheels”--the 66th battled German panzers in North Africa, Sicily, Normandy, and the Battle of the Bulge and defeated fanatical last-ditch resistance in Germany itself in 1945.
