    A farm hand aged 19 who joined the Ivy Division in Normandy and never got to see home again. A poignant collection.

    On July 7, having been moved to an assembly area south and west of Carentan, the 22nd Infantry attacked, thereby beginning one of its bloodiest engagements of the entire war—the Carentan-Periers operation (otherwise known as "The Battle of the Hedgerows"). The objective of the operation was the seizure of Periers, a necessary preliminary to the forthcoming breakout from the peninsula. The attack moved with extreme slowness.Enemy resistance in the form of young SS troops and fresh paratroops was stubborn, and the ground was given up to the advance of the regiment yard by yard, and foot by foot.
