The Cover-up at Omaha Beach
D-Day, the US Rangers, and the Untold Story of Maisy BatteryBook - 2014
"The purpose of this book is primarily to correct one of the largest 'mistakes' made surrounding the history of D-Day--that is the omission of the Maisy Battery in the history of the defence of France--6 June 1944. ... I am hoping to tell more of the Rangers' story on D-Day and where appropriate I have included pieces from other members of the armed forces fighting alongside or near to the Rangers. In particular, the achievements of the 5th Battalion of the Rangers have often been overshadowed by the 2nd Battalion's efforts, as reported at Pointe du Hoc. Yet a number of men from the 5th Battalion were at Pointe du Hoc on D-Day. Equally, a number of men from the 2nd Battalion were at Maisy and did the same. This book is all about telling more of the Rangers' story in Normandy in greater detail and where possible, through the men themselves. These are their words and history.--Author's preface.
