Military Snapshot - GIs Taking Cover in Rennes

Under fire, American soldiers hug the ground. Before the 4th Armored Division could take the major Breton port of Lorient it had to take some intermediate objectives such as the city of Rennes, the capital of Brittany. This occured on August 4 with the help of an infantry regiment. Photo courtesy of National Archives, from Patton's Third Army in World War II by Michael Green & James D. Brown.
