The battle for Saint-Lo (After the Battle 138)

 
 
As General Omar N. Bradley's US First Army made its way inland following the successful D-Day landings in Normandy of June 6, 1944, the immediate objective was to capture the Cotentin peninsula and secure the viatal port of Cherbourg. On the remainder of their front the Americans essentially went into a holding pattern, waiting for the fall of Cherbourg, at which point all energies would be directed towards a break-out to the south. The axis for any such attack lay along the main road south from Carentan, leading to the key objective, the city of St Lô. Phillip Bradley tells the story.
