Objective Saint-Lô: 7 June 1944–18 July 1944 Kindle Edition
"As you follow the soldiers who wrote the memoirs and their close comrades, you get a sense of the hedgerow carnage on both sides, especially with the tally of individuals killed in action and wounded in action numbers."

So Well Done Pen & Sword for taking up the gauntlet,and this is a very good start,remaining faithful to the French edition in layout and number of photographs.About 4 or 5 have been removed but are of no great importance.
One of the curious things about the American battle in Normandy is that apart from the D-Day phase,how few books ( compared to the British & Canadians ) apart from the official & rather dry divisional histories have been published,especially on the war in the hedgerows and battle for St.Lo.This a must for those interested.The eye-witness accounts are largely but not exclusively based on a 29th U.S Div Lieutenant.& a German para,adding the human dimension & personal detail to the beautifully illustrated narrative.
While not comprehensive( i,e not much coverage of the 2nd or 35 US Divisions ) it is still an excellent addition to the English language books on the battle of Normandy.
While Heimdal have now published a couple in translation themselves,( Three Days In Hell & Corridor Of Death ) they can be a bit clunky.Other than a few minor glitches in editing this is a good translation,which anyone interested in the campaign will read with profit.
So,thanks Pen and Sword - and with Battle of the Odon, and Battle of the Cotentin already in the pipeline,I for one can't wait for them.
Then,I'd like Hill 112,Caen,Goodwood,Villers Bocage,Falaise,La Haye Du Puits & Cobra please!
