Day 3 - Sainte-Marie-Dumont - Normandy Beaches - Sainte-Marie-Dumont
Now we turn to America's role -from the enormity of the battlefields to personal histories. At Sainte-Mère-Église we hearhow US soldier John Steele was caught on the church steeple, then visit Utah Beach Museum. But nothing quite compares to Pointedu Hoc.
