|Summary, etc.:|| On June 6, 1944, nineteen boys from Bedford, Virginia died in the first bloody minutes of D-Day, part of the first wave of American soldiers to hit the sands of Normandy. Later in the campaign, three more soldiers from the same town died of gunshot wounds. Here is the intimate story of these young men and their friends and families in Bedford.
