After landing on D-Day, the 2nd Infantry Division was immediately pressed into the attack despite their support weapons and equipment not having arrived. Almost a week later, the division was still fighting with rifles alone. On June 13th, the 1st Battalion crossed the River Elle in an attack towards the town of St. George-d’Elle but was pinned down by mortar and machine-gun fire. D Company went over to Company C in an effort to help push their advance. . .
Attacker: American (Company C+D, 1st Battalion, 38th Infantry Regiment)
