Item description for Dying for Saint-Lô: Hedgerow Hell, July 1944 by Didier Lodieu...
From 5 to 20 July 1944 American invasion forces ran into fierce resistance around the French town of Saint-Lo, an important railway and road communications center in Normandy. As well as the Heer divisions such as the Panzer Lehr, GIs had to fight the redoubtable paratroopers and Waffen-SS who made them pay a heavy price for each hedgerow and each village they managed to take.A self-taught historian, Didier Lodieu is the author of several works on the Battle of Normandy, of which he is one of the foremost specialists in France. By going through unit logbooks, contacting veterans, and by conducting research in the field, Didier Lodieu gives us an accurate story of the Battle for Saint-Lo, illustrated with almost 300 previously unpublished photos. REVIEWS "...superbly chosen photographs... most have been previously unpublished...an excellent look at how the war was fought...provides those sorts of details that armor modelers find so important and so will definitely appeal to the armor modeler as well as the historian. It is a book that I found to be exceptional and I think that you will as well."10/2007, S Van Aken, ModelMadness.com "...readily understandable and well-written. The photos alone make it worth the purchase price."11/07, P Driscoll, HPS Simulations
