If David L. Harvey went over with the division, his ship left Hampton Roads, VA, Port of Embarkation, 6 Dec 43;
arrived North Africa, 15 Dec 43, for training;
arrived Naples, Italy, 6 Feb 43;
entered combat in relief of the 36th ID, on Monte Castellone, 28 Feb 44;
after other operations, the division drove against the Gothic Line, andcrossed the Arno River, 1 Sep 44;
relieved in the line 6 Sep 44, for regroupment;
back to the line, , 21 Sep 44, with the 349th IR and 350th IR driving toward Imola;
division attacked Monte Acuto, 24 Sep 44;
captured M. Pratolungo and M. del Puntal, 26 Sep 44, against strong German resistence;
350th IR fought the Battle for M. Battaglia, 27 Sep 44 thru 13 Oct 44.
If on the line in the above time frames, then one would assume that David was killed during the drive against Monte Battaglia, east of Route 6528.
One reference offers the following insight into the battle at that time:
"Taking (the high)ground did not mean that the territory was permanantly secured. For example, although the Second Battalion, 350th IR of the 88th ID, with the aid of Italian partisans, had easily taken the summit of the 2,345 foot high M. Battaglia on the afternoon of 27 Sep 44, the enemy immediately shelled the battalion's position and mounted repeated (at least six) counterattacks, in an effort to retake the mountain".
The division successfully withstood the German efforts.
If you will give me an address, I will be pleased to provide an address which you may call up for all of this reference, without charge, of course. OK ?
I hope that this is of intrerest to you and your family.
