McManus E Gap Assault Team engineers who dealt with the extensive mines and obstacles suffering nearly a fifty percent casualty rate; highlights officers such as Brigadier General Willard Wyman and Colonel George Taylor who led the way to victory; and punctures scores of myths surrounding this long misunderstood battle The Dead and Those About to Die draws on a rich array of new or recently unearthed sources including interviews with veterans The result is history at its finest the unforgettable story of the Big Red One's nineteen hours of hell and their ultimate triumph on June 6 1944. Only two kinds of people are going to be on this beach the dead and those who are going to die Now get moving Col George Taylor lead assault regiment commanderD Day up close and personal A significant addition to the record of the sacrifice made by thousands of Americans to free Europe from the tyranny of Adolph Hitler Closely researched and described to put the reader right among the soldiers dying in the water on the sand and on the slopes of Fortress Europa All the beauty of the world was gone Nothing mattered now except this brutal moment and survival The only way to make sense out of the senseless mess that the invasion became was to follow individuals through it That s what McManus does And well Unfortunately there are too many people and too many stories for the reader to follow his many necessary changes of focus Men all around falling some out of breath some out of life In fact the thread of narrative is soon lost in the tangle of mind numbing repetition and details Every fact about every person does not need to be included and even if it does it need not be repeated The plan for Operation NEPTUNE was a good one but it didn t work It was the individual courage and heroism of the American soldier that won the Beaches EAST RED and FOX GREEN on 6 June 1944 Major Carl Pitt operations officer of the 16th Infantry Regiment
