drive the Allies back into the sea and that the beachhead now was absolutely
secure. Since their landings American troops have captured and evacuated
8,500 prisoners, Gen. Bradley said. Using a twig from a beech tree as a pointer in
the manner of a schoolmaster, he outlined the situation to correspondents. He

without a visible trace, all except the very top of the flagpole. Working down by
the fjord was a ...
