Charles Hauptman, ed. - Combat History of the 10th Mountain Division
At the beginning of the book are maps of various combat zones and routes. The maps are adapted from map art by Armand Casini originally published in 1946 in The Mountaineers. The maps are annotated with page number references to the combat history.

p. 6: There are brief descriptions of patrols sent out in January 1945, some using skis or snowshoes.

p. 12: Preparations for the M. Belvedere attack began on February 15.

p. 16: There are about ten pages of day-by-day descriptions of the attacks on M. Belvedere and M. Della Torraccia between February 19-28. I haven't reviewed the account of the later advance toward the Po Valley.
