Dog Company by Patrick K O'Donnell

If you enjoyed Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers, then this new book on D Day, Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc by Patrick K. O'Donnell will be right up your alley. Well researched and written, the story of a company of US Army Rangers and their near impossible mission is a tale of honor, gallantry, persistence and death.

D Company of the U.S. Army's 2nd Ranger Battalion had been assigned to scale 90 foot cliffs and destroy heavy German artillery that had been placed overlooking the landing beaches. Facing a relentless German defense and overcoming fantastic odds, the men of Dog Company defeated the Germans repeatedly on their trek across Europe.

Stories of bravery during war are nothing new, but the Rangers of Dog Company truly accomplished one of the great military feats in American history.
