Sir weeks after 13-Day, the 29th infantry Division was still fighting in the hedgerows of Normandy, opposed by the German 352nd &fanny Division. The viral crossroads town of Saint Lo was a key objective to the breakout of Normandy. On July 18, the 29th surprised the greatly weakened 352nd and moved into Saint Lo. The Germans immediately counterattacked. Major Thomas Howie, commander of the 116th Regiment, told his men, "You'll see me in St. Lo!" Howie was killed in the attack His men carried his body into the town.
