The Clay Pigeons of St. Lo
Published by Stackpole Books (2002)
Originally published in 1958 and now available for the first time in paperback, this classic of modern military history tells the exciting true story of the fall of St. Lo, the first major objective of the invading American armies in Normandy in June of 1944. Although St. Lo was intended to be taken within days of the landing, stubborn German resistance postponed the town's fall until July 18. The author describes the bloody action that took place in the thirty days in between as he led his battalion - dubbed "The Indestructible Clay Pigeons" - through the daunting combat.
