Battle Zone Normandy: Battle for Cherbourg - Havers, Robin, and Havers, R P W, and Trew, Simon (Editor)

In order to reinforce and expand the D-Day bridgeheads won on June 6 1944, the Allies needed a port to bring in troops and vital supplies. Cherbourg, at the northern end of the Cotentin peninsula, was therefore the first priority for the American VII Corps, under the command of Major General J. Lawton 'Lightning Joe' Collins.
