Corredato di numerosissime foto d’epoca, documenti e cartine, il libro esamina dettagliatamente la battaglia di Carentan, che vide opporsi dal 9 al 13 giugno 1944 due unità d'élite leggendarie: i paracadutisti americani della 101st Airborne e i Fallschirmjäger dell' FJR 6.

The liberation of Carentan is not well-known even though it wasn’t just an anecdote in the Battle of Normandy. It was in fact the object of ferocious fighting from 9 to 13 June 1944 with two elite units confronting each other : the American paratroopers from the 101st Airborne and the Fallschirmjäger of the FJR 6. General Maxwell Taylor, commanding the 101st Airborne used the whole of his division with its four airborne regiments but also all the supporting units, its four airborne artillery batteries, its medical units and its logistics to encircle the town and to chase out the German paratroopers under Major Freiherr von der Heydte ; they left after fierce fighting during the night of 11-12 June only to return the next day with the 17. SS-Pz-GrenDiv. “Goetz von Berlinchingen”. The German losses as well as those of the Americans were very heavy, as were those of the civilians (the town centre still bears the signs). This book gives a detailed account of the Battle of Carentan.
