The 4th Infantry, nicknamed the “Ivy” Division, landed at Utah beach on D-Day and quickly hooked up inland with the US 82nd and 101st Airborne. They fought their way through the hedgerows of the Cotentin peninsula and took part in the capture of Cherbourg in near continuous combat from the day of the landing until the 28th of June. They were then shifted south and along with the 2nd Armored Division spearheaded the assault at St Lo. They were also the first Americans to enter Paris, fought in the Hurtgen Forest and battle of the Bulge, and participated in every major campaign spending 199 straight days in contact with the enemy.
In our opinion this is ideal for a unique collection. We would not use these with existing King & Country, Collectors Showcase and Figarti Collections.
