9th Infantry Division

Welcome to this U.S. 9th Infantry Division website.

This website provides information about the World War Two actions of the U.S. 9th Infantry Division.
The 9th Infantry Division was also known as “The Old Reliables” or “Notorious”.

The Division went through eight battles, and was already a “veteran Division” by the time that D-Day started. Having fought in Algeria – French Morocco, Tunisia, and Sicily, the Division helped to cut off the French Peninsula during the battle of Normandy, fought their way through Belgium, and was among the first to set foot on German soil in September 1944. Here they fought some heavy battles in the Hurtgen Forest. After this they fought in the Ardennes, went across the Rhineland, and finally ended up in Central Europe. This website will provide information about the eight battles, Division and Unit histories, After Action Reports, reports of visits to the former battlefields, pictures and special tribute pages, dedicated to the men who served with the 9th Infantry Division during World War Two.

A special section will be available for family members who wish to find out more about their father, grandfather, brother, uncle or maybe great uncle, who served in the 9th Division. I will provide information and try to help you to find out more about the soldier in question.The information on this website is never complete, I will always keep adding information, and hope to have a huge online source of information about this Division in the future.

PLEASE NOTE: The top menu links are pages as well, so make sure you don’t just click the drop down menu’s!

I am always looking for information about the Division. If you have pictures, documents, items, anything related to this Division, I would be very happy to see them, and make sure they will be used to complement the website. If you have any questions, please contact me through the “Contact” page, and I will write back as soon as possible.

This website is also my personal tribute to all the men who served in the 9th Infantry Division.They left their homes, families and friends, went to Europe, and fought in unknown places to liberate us, so we can live in freedom today. I will never forget what you have done for us.

With this website, I thank each and everyone of you.

You will always be remembered.
