"We’ll start the war from here" Utah Beach, June 6th 1944.

It was a nearly 100-meter-high cliff, with perpendicular sides jutting out into the Channel. It looked down on Utah Beach to the left and Omaha Beach to the right. There were six 155mm cannon in heavily reinforced concrete bunkers that were capable of hitting either beach with their big shells. On the outermost edge of the cliff, the Germans had an elaborate, well-protected outpost, where the spotters had a perfect view and could call back coordinates to the gunners at the 155s. Those guns had to be neutralized.

Battlefield Cant- Normandy Fields
"That’s what we found the next morning, the four of us, although we didn’t relize at first whose plane it was. The plane was out in a field beyond where we had landed. It was all torn up, burned, pieces of aluminum, dead bodes, so we didn’t spend much time there. This kind of thing happened and you didn’t dwell on it, you just got back to business."
