about this item

This book provides a day-by-day account of the forty-two days of fighting from Omaha Beach to Saint-Lão. Follow Lt. Allsup from the beaches at Hill 108 (the 'bloody hill'), where he was injured, and Lt. Jones, who was among the first to enter Saint-Lão; a town destroyed by bombs, which was to become the graveyard of hundreds of Normans. On the opposing side, discover the fate of the fearsome 'green devil' paratroopers of General Schimpf and follow in the footsteps of paratroopers Erwin Schmieger and RudiFrhbeisser, as they defend their armed camp, ensuring that every hedge will only be taken at the highest price. Objective Saint-Lão takes the reader along the little or un-known routes from the horrors of Omaha Beach to Trvires, La Cambe, Isigny, throughthe Aure valley to Hill 108, ('Purple Heart Hill') and Hills 192 and 122. As well as authentic eyewitness testimony, the book also acts as a field guide, including maps and both comtemporary and modern photographs.
