Pub. Date:
Bennett (humanities, U. of Plymouth, UK) examines the American involvement in the Normandy campaign at the regimental level, focusing on the 22nd Infantry Regiment, which landed on Utah Beach in June 1942 and became involved in a war of siege against German fortifications; the 116th Infantry Regiment, which took heavy casualties in forcing its way off Omaha Beach and breaking through the Nazi's Atlantic Wall; and the 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment, which suffered the worst misdrop of any American parachute regiment and wound up fighting in isolated groups for control of bridges, roads, and dry land in the midst of a vast swampland.
