About the Book

 

From 5 to 20 July 1944 American invasion forces ran into fierce resistance around the French town of Saint-Lo, an important railway and road communications centre in Normandy.


As well as the Heer divisions such as the Panzer Lehr, GIs had to fight the redoubtable paratroopers and Waffen-SS . These SS crack troops made them pay a heavy price for each hedgerow and each village they managed to take.


A self-taught historian, Didier Lodieu is the author of several works on the Battle of Normandy, of which he is one of the foremost specialists in France.


By going through unit logbooks, contacting veterans, and by conducting research in the field, Didier Lodieu gives us an accurate story of the Battle for Saint-Lo, illustrated with almost 300 previously unpublished photos.
