About the Author

Intrigued at a young age by her heritage and family history, Caroline Jolivet has always been fascinated by her grandfather, Bernard Dargols' involvement in the US military and his participation in the landing at Omaha Beach. Following a trip to New York in 2005 in the footsteps of her grandparents, she began to research and write down her grandfather's memories, which he had kept hidden for so long.
