The Cotentin Peninsula and particularly the port of Cherbourg were an important early objective for the Allies on D-Day. Despite securing this crucial foothold, resistance in the rest of Brittany was never completely subdued and pockets of German control, in St Nazaire and Lorient, remained until the end of the war. This history focuses on the action that took place in the area, in which the author was personally involved as a 20-year-old American staff sergeant.
