ASL Action Pack # 4 Normandy 1944
or to see your play details)
Normandy, France 1944. After months of planning and preparation, the "Second Front" is finally opened on June 6 on the shores of Normandy. Almost immediately Allied forces begin to experience firsthand what Allied planners had, in their preoccupation to get ashore, failed to recognize-that the ancient Norman hedgerows would present the Germans with a supreme defensive asset. On June 8, General Omar Bradley characterized the terrain as the "damndest country I've seen". He was referring to bocage country, a hellish green maze of narrow roads and open fields bounded by nearly-impenetrable earthen mounds anchoring tangled hedges and dense stands of trees.
