Abstract:

"Hit the beach and get to the bottom of one of the most heroic and unlikely missions of D-Day. The largest invasion in history, an unprecedented single-day mobilization of military force, succeeded in many ways due to the actions of just a few men. In one critical mission, a force of only 200 US Rangers -- a new unit trained by British commandos in Scotland -- had the impossible task of securing clifftop artillery emplacements that threatened the Allied offensive. Climbing the ninety foot cliffs under a storm of German bullets and grenades, the Rangers found that the German guns were not where they should be. What followed was a desperate game of cat and mouse, as the Rangers attempted to hunt down the guns. With trademark drama and insight, Battlefield Detectives reveals how the heavily outnumbered US Rangers took, held and destroyed the guns of Pointe du Hoc." -- Publisher's web site.
