i think a lot of people are going to be disappointed when these go public,our government had a set of them,and no doubt they were used to locate+bury the remains after the war,as far as identifying the missing graves of soldiers,i dont think they will throw up anything else.
the NOK and all the other info in these records will be a virtual goldmine and will fill in a lot of gaps for those searching for answers.
