Description
In this you-are-there account of a significant chapter in the D-Day invasion saga of World War II, U.S. Army pathfinder Robert Murphy of A Company, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, describes what 82nd Airborne Division commander James Gavin called "the hottest single incident I experienced in all my combat service both in Europe and later in Korea." As depicted in the film The Longest Day, the 505th dropped behind German lines just hours ahead of the Normandy landings to seize the vital crossroads of Sainte-Mère-Église and to hold the bridge over the Merderet at nearby La Fière. Murphy and his comrades not only held the bridge for three days, they launched a counterattack in the teeth of enemy fire, at gruesome cost.
