My Story: D-Day
Lieutenant Andy Pope, Normandy, 1944
Andy Pope is an eighteen-year-old Second Lieutenant in a British infantry battalion. He is younger than many of the men in his platoon – something that makes it particularly hard to be their officer. But through fairness and with the guidance of a seasoned sergeant, he earns his men’s respect by handling his troops well on exercise, and leading them into battle when the chips are down. He’s put to the test when he finds himself in charge of a unit that has to keep Germans from occupying a strategic French town.
