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.
Thanks for the kind words! I’m glad you like the site, comments like yours really make the site worth doing!
