Capturing the harbor at Brest in the French province of Brittany was crucial for securing the flank of the Normandy landings in the summer of 1944. The 2nd Infantry Division, 8th Infantry Division, 29th Infantry Division, 83rd Infantry Division, the U.S. Rangers, the 4th Armored Division, the 6th Armored Division, and Tank Destroyers were detailed for the task. Facing them were such units as the Germans could throw at them, their resistance stiffened by Bernhard Ramke's elite paratroopers. The author of Spearheading D-Day draws on eyewitness accounts to tell the story of a hard-fought battle on the flank of the Normandy landings, including unpublished period photographs, definitive unit organization charts, maps, and photos of uniforms and equipment.
