Hi it’s me again.
Well... I’m reading the book „Bastogne- if you don’t know what „NUTS“ means“ from Guy Franz Arend.
On page 111 it says: ”…the 2nd Battalion of the 327th Glider Infantry Regiment…” .

So a “Regiment” cannot be another name for “Battalion” can it?
But in the link above says it…..

Can anyone help me please?

No, a regiment is not the same as battalion. I'm not sure how it works in the US, but in Denmark a regiment is where the troops get there basic training and equipment. When they go to war they are organised in battalions etc. In other words, we don't "fight" in regiments, although they often retain the regimental belonging in their name.
The reason is a battalion is flexible and can be build up to fit the needs of the battlefield. A regiment is usually confined to a single service eg. armour, infantry etc.
But this is all present time organisation... It is not unlikely is was different in ww2
