    26th July 1944


    A US tank crew posing for the camera from a foxhole beneath their M-10 tank destroyer, north of Marigny, Normandy, 26 July 1944.

    The men belong to the 703rd Tank Destroyer Battalion attached to Combat Command B of the 3rd Armored Division.

    The unit landed in France on 1 July, and saw its first action near Hautes Vents a fortnight later. This photo was taken in the intervening week, before the unit participated in Operation Cobra - Lieutenant General Omar Bradley's push to break through the German defensive lines that were pinning down Allied forces in the Normandy bocage countryside.
