OHP Radio - Best Of - Bob Slaughter
Our History Project - Bob Slaughter - D-Day - Omaha Beach
This week we where in multiple meetings and under a pen getting our first grant together. It has been a long time in coming and a lot to learn, but there are words on the page and reviews going out. So, we are excited about that. So, until next week enjoy a best of OHP production.
This week’s Show features Bob Slaughter, his personal experience and firsthand account of storming Omaha Beach on June 6th , 1945. Bob has had his account published under his given name “John Robert Slaughter” entitled “Omaha Beach and Beyond, The long march of Sgt. Bob Slaughter”. Read More About Bob Slaughter see Our History Project Authors Corner.
Our Review of the book will be released soon at Our History Project Book Review, so check back and see what we thought of the book.
We also had a chance to speak with Mark Patterson of Pathfinder Tours who is taking Bob back to Normandy to recount his trials and tribulations there. Mark also hosts an Online Museum for World War 2 Collectors with text, documents, photos and finds. It can be found at World War II Paratroopers.
