Apparently my Google-fu is weak.

I'm thinking of biting the bullet and starting up a FoW force, as FoW is the only historical ruleset where I can pretty much be sure to get a game around here. Anyhow, being British (and originally from Oxfordshire) I've decided I want to base my force on the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry regiment, more specifically the 7th Battalion that took part in the Anzio landings. However the only real source of info I found on-line for them is The Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry and I'm wondering what websites/books would be a good source of Orders of Battle, Regimental Uniforms & Insignia, as well as what support units (specifically Infantry Tanks) would be historically accurate in a FoW force.

Any suggestions?

Obviously the most famous action by the Ox and Bucks is the seizure of Pegasus bridge on the eve of the 5th June 1944. If your not familiar with it I can recommend Steven Ambrose's book Pegasus Bridge. The appropriate list can be found in the D-1 book.

Awesome, thanks. Might have to hunt for that. I was rather hoping to do a Festung Europa list, but Pegasus Bridge might be even cooler.
