Abstract : The objective of the effort was to collect historical data on at least fourteen actions where the US was in defense against enemy armor. The data will be used in a joint US/UK analysis of the degradation in anti-armor defense effectiveness under combat conditions. 29 combat actions were described in detail from the engagement at Krinkelt-Rocherath, Belgium in December 1944. The combat actions are presented in both narrative form and in data tables with all identified data displayed. A database and hard copy file will also be delivered as a final product. This volume contains a 'How To Research' Guide describing the necessary information to successfully conduct research for this study. Also included is an appendix detailing the performance of U.S. anti tank weapons against German tanks and an appendix of actions sorted by date, location, and type of weapon used.
