French TextWell known author George Bernage presents the difficult and challenging battles lead by the US Army south of the Cotentin Peninsula, from July 2 to July 15, 1944. Forced to fight in the marshes, and suffering initial losses during their confrontation of the determined Germans, Bernage describes the resulting preparation of Operation Cobra which resulted in the carpet bombing of July 25 and 26, 1944, and the decisive breach all the way to Coutances and Avranches.
