About The Author

Carl Shilleto works as a specialist battlefield guide for one of the largest coach tour firms in the UK covering areas such as Normandy, Arnhem, Nijmegen, Oosterbeck, Anzio, Salerno, and Monte Cassino. As a writer, he is a specialist on the Normandy Campaign. His other works include The Fighting Fifty-Second and Pegasus Bridge and the Merville Battery. He also writes frequently for newspapers. Mike Tolhurst is a specialist on the history of the US Army in Europe. His interest in the subject dates back fifty-five years to when his Royal Navy father piloted the craft that landed the US Rangers on Omaha Beach for their attack on the guns of Pointe du Hoc. At their first reunion after the war, the grateful Rangers officially adopted Michael Tolhurst as their mascot—a close association he has enjoyed ever since. Tolhurst is presently the archivist for the Rothschild Bank in London. He has written numerous magazine articles and is also the author of The Battle of the Bulge—First Blood.
