404th Fighter Group : Dans La Bataille De Normandie Hardback
This group was formed on 25 January 1943, it arrived on English soil in March-April 1944 and retook the soil of Normandy after having operated under the skies of Normandy from England.
It was based at A-5, at Cartigny-l'Epinay (Calvados.) This book retraces the military actions of this cavalry group, thanks to its war journal and to the testimonies of its veterans.
