If you are willing to go to College Park or work with NARA remotely (but slowly) you can get a lot of information from the SAR in the Subject. It is listed as a recommended source of information by a number of works on Tarawa like Alexander's Across The Reef. Be aware that the body of the work is made up of Enclosures 'A' thru 'T'. If you just request the SAR you get Enclosure A which is called a "Narrative". The following link will take you to scanned cover pages to this SAR which provides the enclosures and what they contain. I'm currently waiting for a number of them. Remote cost for copying is .80 cents per page. I think it is the same for digital scan as well. If you have any problem with the link, please let me know. I have tried to find this work on FOLD3 and anyplace else on the Net but not there as far as I can tell. I believe Hyperwar has a transcription of Enclosure K only but it may have more.

    Does anyone have links to pre-invasion unit instructions and after action reports of the battle. I've only found the articles on Tarawa on the Web. Thanks in advance.
