French Text

The extreme difficulty of the battles in the Cotentin marshes has already been discussed in Operation Cobra, during which Mont Castre represented a primary obstacle. Here Heimdal presents La Haye-du-Puits, the final hurdle to achieve in order to prepare the departure base necessary for the ultimate breach. Highly illustrated with numerous color photos, this work offers a rich description of the terrain and equipment used on the battlefield.


... well illustrated with photos from the time, along with modern day comparisons, so it makes for a useful guide if you wanted to travel in the area and visit the places where these events took place. Mixed in are pictures of surviving uniforms and equipment, the kind of references ideal for modellers... an excellent reference source for the campaign.
