Pegasus Bridge was the first engagement of D-Day. The allies knew that the bridges over the Orne River and the adjacent canal were the key to D-Day and so did the Germans.
This is the story of Major John Howard and the 181 troops under his command. It was their task to seize Pegasus Bridge.
"PEGASUS BRIDGE takes one critical feature of the Normandy assault and describes it so vividly that the reader feels transported onto the ground at the time, can hear the gunfire and watch the wounds bleed." (The Economist)

In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, a small detachment of British airborne troops stormed the German defense forces and paved the way for the Allied invasion of Europe. Pegasus Bridge was the first engagement of D-Day, the turning point of World War II. This gripping account of it by acclaimed author Stephen Ambrose brings to life a daring mission so crucial that, had it been unsuccessful, the entire Normandy invasion might have failed.
