Book Hour: “Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc” with WWII author Patrick O’Donnell


The Dog Company had to climb ninety-feet cliffs on D-Day to disable concrete artillery bunkers and make Omaha and Utah beaches safe for Allied forces. Their missions then took them to capture the French city of Brest despite Hitler’s concentration of forces to defend the strategically-vital port (necessary to re-supply the Allies after landing at D-Day). Dog Company was them assigned to the forests surrounding the impending Battle of the Bulge. Learn about high command’s strategic oversight that could have prevented the Battle. Learn the details about individual soldiers and their bravery. A remarkable book about forgotten deeds by Patrick O’Donnell.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
