The Longest Walk

The Longest Walk

A presentation on the recently published book, “The Longest Walk,” the

story of the 116th Infantry Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division which

landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day June 6, 1944.  The regiment’s exploits

were featured in the riveting opening scene of the movie “Saving Private

Ryan.”  This regiment lost one third of the 3200 men who made the

landing that day.  The talk will relate the unit’s actions on D-Day and

its subsequent hard fought maneuvers to capture St. Lo, France, 40

agonizing days later.
