Vol. 3 No. 8 ……. Cover: Normandy Mascot ……. Fighting in the Hedgerows and Orchards of France – See pages 2 to 7 ……. Articles Inside: … South through the Hedgerows – In other summers, back home, hedgerows were something poets wrote about and orchards were where apples came from. This summer, in Normandy, hedgerows and orchards — in seemingly endless number — form the grim setting for a unique kind of warfare in which many a GI has staked his life. On the following six pages three YANK correspondents give a panoramic account of what life has been like for the men who have been struggling forward on the American front — south of La Haye du Puits and on the way to St. Lo. By Sgt. Saul Levitt ….. Meanwhile, Outside St. Lo… Sgt. Bill Davidson ….. …and then St. Lo was freed. By Sgt. Walter Peters ….. Hospital in a Hold – “Floating boxcars,” skippers called them contemptuously — but that was in the days when it was thought that a Landing Ship, Tanks, merely landed tanks. Than someone realized that there would be a lot off empty space, space in which to carry wounded back across the Channel and treat them en route. The medical equipment may be jury-rigged, but the fact remains that LSTs have proved a life-saving boon to many an injured fighter being evacuated from France this summer. By Tom Bernard Sp.1c …..
