"From the deck of the destroyer Yank, this Yank correspondent watched for nearly three nights as the grim drama of D-Day unfolded on the American beachhead."
"The Doyle had been assigned two targets -the first a 125-yard stretch of cliff on which were ensconced five pillboxes, two machine gun nests, and two concrete shelters, probably containing 88-mm. guns all of which must be neutralized before H-hour; the second another strongly fortified position up a winding draw...From the Doyle's decks I could see the shells strike with the naked eye. First there would be a flash and then a puff of smoke which billowed into the sky. Several tanks and landing crafts were burning at the water's edge. Through the glasses I watched troops jump from their boats and start running up the beach."
