- Hi there. On .de and on commons there are some nice images and on http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/BOOKS/WWII/utah/utah.htm you can find very useful free (PD) text. Regards, John N. 13:21, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
I suggest deleting the Fiction section - it looks quite random, considering the huge amount of "Fiction" that deals with the topic. And it's not very informative, either. --Astat (talk) 14:20, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
Is there any patricular reason for the 'Result' in the Info box being an 'Allied victory'? On reading and editing the article, I can find no mention of any non American unit. Indeed, this quote from the intro: "American troops isolated and then captured the fortified port" seems to sum it up (as it is meant to). In the 'view history', I note that the 'Result' has changed once or twice between an 'Allied' and an 'American' victory. If the Americans were the only Allies involved in the Battle of Cherbourg, then doen't that make it an American victory?
