Overview

Pegasus Bridge - Benouville, D-Day 1944 by Will Fowler, Johnny Shumate, Alan Gilliland, Tim Brown

The night before D-Day, light infantry and a detachment of Royal Engineers landed by gliders at Pegasus Bridge, which spanned the Caen Canal. Quickly overwhelming the guards, they managed to hold the bridge and help prevent German reinforcements from reaching the British landing beaches. Will Fowler provides a detailed blow-by-blow account of this classic wartime raid.
