  1. This is an incredibly valuable site, and much appreciated.

    My uncle died in a Sherman (gunner) during Operation Cobra, Aug.1, 1944.

    This site goes a long way toward helping understand what his life must have been like from the time he was committed to combat in mid-July, St. Lo, to his death near Tessy sur Vire during the breakout.
