In June 1944, the Americans left the Sainte-Mère-Eglise and Utah Beach bridgehead and crossed the Merderet river to the Chaussée de la Fiere, taking Picauville on 10 June. Their advance was slowed following the failure of the 90th Infantry Division, but they were able to take Pont-l'Abbe on 12 June and Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte 16 June. Two days later they cut the Cotentin peninsula at Barneville, before heading north towards Cherbourg.

As well as authentic eyewitness testimony, the book also acts as a field guide, including maps and both comtemporary and modern photographs.
