I was wondering what to post about Operation Overlord, if anything. Saw this linked at PowerLine.
Following another link, I found pics from Before and After D Day on Life Magazine's website.
***Marshall's reputation suffered when Hackworth wrote his memoirs. It was always obvious in his personal writings that Marshal was a bit of a name dropper; apparently, based on Hackworth's version, all he talked about between interviewing GIs in Viet Nam was selling his new book to Hollywood for a new blockbuster a la Pork Chop Hill.
Not to speak ill of the dead, but later, Hackworth's success went to his head and he turned into something of a demagogue himself.
And, FWIW, my previous Overlord posts are here and here.
