I just realized that it would have been better to post this thread:

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=988228

here instead of in the Imperial German section - for which I appologize. If you happen to know of any good websites dealing in detail with the French Army 1914-1918, please be so kind as to add these in this thread or the one in the Imperial German section. Thanks.

Hallo Kaiser

BNF Gallica. Here is what you can freely obtain with the simple search function historique du ... regiment (47225 entries, 3149 pages):

https://gallica.bnf.fr/services/engi...g=it&suggest=0

Thank you! Very useful - unfortunately far from complete. It is missing all four of the regimental histories I am looking for (8, 33, 73 and 148 RdI). Nevertheless a very good resource for other regiments and one I will probably be using in the near future for other regiments.

THANKS AGAIN! I discovered horizon14-18 earlier today as I was searching for the regimental history of 33 RdI - I am very happy with that website. I will check out the others in the days ahead. Thanks again!

You're welcome

This is the official website of the French army:

http://www.memoiredeshommes.sga.defe...ref=20&le_id=8

The French sitology on the great war is almost boundless. Let me know if you are also interested in the history of Italian units (obviously in this case you have to be fluent with the Italian language) and I will show you what is currently on the web.

Best regards
