This booklet is dedicated to the forty-one officers and men of the Eighty-First Chemical Mortar Battalion who made the supreme sacrifice. To give a thorough account of the accomplishments of the Eighty-First Chemical Mortar Battalion would take thousands of pages. To detail the heroic deeds and meritorious service of the gallant officers and men of the Eighty-First would take more thousands of pages. A booklet the size of this could be written about each enlisted man and .each officer. It is be{ieved the history is concise, yet shows the battalion to have lived up to its motto, "Equal To The Task."

• Jack W. Lipphardt, Lt. Col., C. W.S., Commanding
