This is the home of the WWII 808 Tank Destroyers. The tank destroyers
were created during WWI to destroy the Germans' new tanks. The 808th TD
Battalion was under Gen. Patton's command and were considered "his own"
Tank Destroyers. Our site hopes to familiarize visitors not only with
the 808th TD Battalion but also with the European Theater of operations
and the era of tank destroyers. We also have a large area devoted to the
808 tank destroyer vets since the end of WWII.
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands:
One nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Tank Destroyer Battalions were attached to other
divisions and were commanded
by the Commanding General of the Ground
There purpose was to seek, strike and destroy the enemy.
TDs (tank destroyers) were developed during WWII for WWII offensive against German tanks which were far superior to our own.
An email arrived on December 10, 2011 from Passau, Germany. Anna E. Rosmus, who grew up
wants to thank the 808th. tank destroyer battalion for what they did for the town and its people.
