Description

For nearly four years, the swastika had flown belligerently over the small town of Sainte Mere Eglise in Normandy. Suddenly, shortly after midnight on the night of 5/6th June 1944, parachutists from the 82nd Airborne Division began landing in and around the town.

By 04.30, after a tough fire fight, troopers from the 505th PIR had raised another flag over the town – the Stars and Stripes – and Sainte Mere Eglise had become the first town in Normandy to be liberated by the Allies on D-Day. Sherman tanks landing on nearby Utah Beach with the US VII Corps were soon passing through the newly liberated town on the way to the front.

THE SIGNATURES

This outstanding tribute has been issued to commemorate the men that fought so gallantly at Normandy in 1944. Each print in every edition has been signed by some of the most eminent American airborne veterans to take part in the action, fighting from Normandy to final victory in Germany.

Lieutenant Colonel JAMES “MAGGIE” MEGELLAS
Sergeant BOB BEARDEN
Sergeant MILTON SCHLESENER
