Offered for auction is a truly unique D-Day artefact: it is a 1947-published Utah Beach Official Army Combat Report (including many maps, see attached photo's. Many reprints are available of this book, but the original (like this one) is very difficult to find! This is one of the most extensive reports (>210 pages, over 20 (large fold-out) maps!) published about the Utah Beach invasion so shortly after the invasion, and would be an excellent addition to your US WW2 / historic collection.
''Utah Beach to Cherbourg was prepared in the field by the 2d Information and Historical Service, attached to First Army, and by the Historical Section, European Theater of Operations. It is based on complete unit reports and records, on interviews, and on available enemy records.''
The book is in very nice condition.
Note: stripes on photo's are not present on the actual book; they are due to the sunblockers!
