The Bedford Boys is the astonishing true story of 21 young men who were killed during the first horrifying minutes of D-Day and the friends and families they left behind in the small town of Bedford. Twenty-one sons killed - no other town in America suffered a greater loss in one day. It is an unforgettable story of triumph, courage, and tragedy based on extensive interviews with survivors and relatives as well as diaries and letters. Alex Kershaw's remarkable book brings to vivid, heartbreaking life the hitherto untold story of one small American town, their sons, and the brutal, bloody war that deprived them of their futures.

Tells in gory detail and heartbreaking reference to the horror of war both at the front and at home where worry and lack of knowledge kindle burning fear. Future generations need to know about our mistakes to let them learn how we had to give up so many lives to achieve the peace that we all want. Todays political leaders should be made to read this.
