The Bedford Boys

By Alex Kershaw

On 6 June 1944, nineteen boys from Bedford, Virginia – population just 3,000 in 1944 – died in the first bloody minutes of D-Day.

Later in the campaign, three more boys from this small Virginia town died of gunshot wounds. Twenty-two sons of Bedford were lost in total. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and relatives, as well as diaries and letters, Alex Kershaw’s book focuses on several remarkable individuals and families to tell one of the most poignant stories of World War II – the story of one small American town that went to war and died on Omaha Beach.

The Bedford Boys is the true and intimate story of these men and the friends and families they left behind.
