Invasion of Normandy
‘You Were Doin a Lot of Prayin’

He describes the chaos of getting into his landing craft and how he was “scared to death.” Fitch explains how he looked for potential areas for cover as he came close to the coast, knowing Germans were awaiting their arrival with several machine guns ready to fire along the beach.
