Rapid Fire Sainte-Mere-Eglise Counter Attack

Rapid Fire Sainte-Mere-Eglise Counter Attack

Watermarked PDF

The town of Sainte-Mère-Église was a key objective of the US 82nd Airborne Division on D-Day 6th June 1944. It was a major cross roads on the main N13 road that connected Caen to Cherbourg and by daylight the town was in the hands of Lt Colonel Edward Krause's 3rd Battalion of the 505 Parachute Infantry Regiment.  The Germans reacted quickly and counter-attacked throughout the day.  With the help of Lt Colonel Ben Vandervoort (John Wayne in the Longest Day) and his 2nd Battalion of 'All Americans' these attacks were repulsed.

A 200 point battlegroup of US paras against 350 point force of Germans which includes a rather mixed bag of armour support. The orders of battle are provided in our normal full colour graphical format and the battle map is drawn in the modular format in the popular Normandy Battlegames book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
