Band of Brothers: Dead Man's Corner




Band of Brothers:  Dead Man's Corner





This series of pictures depicts Dead Man's Corner and the Dead Man's corner museum.

This is a war-time photo that I downloaded off the internet

This house is currently the home of the DMC Museum. On D-Day, this was the headquarters of Col. Von Der Heydt, who commanded the 6th German Parachute Regiment. On D-Day, this house also served as a field hospital, and if you go there today, you'll see a fine exhibit dedicated to that aspect of the fight. Apparently, one of the German surgeons was wounded or killed, and a German medic and his assistant set up in this house, and they treated both Germans and Americans. If I remember correctly, an American medic was captured and he worked with his German counterpart for the next three days until the Americans captured this area on June 8th. During the airdrop, American planes also dropped medical equipment and that was used to treat the wounded.

Dead Man's corner got its name the following way. This intersection is actually a Y. To the right, the road leads straight east to Utah Beach. To the left, the road goes straight north to Ste Come Dumont and Ste Mere Eglise. Behind me on this shot is Carentan.

A column of tanks coming down the road from the right reached this intersection and turned towards Carentan. The first tank, a Stuart light tank, was hit right in the turret by either a rocket (Panzerfaust) or an 88 shell and the commander of the tank, Lt. Anderson was killed. The tank was disabled and Lt. Anderson's body hung out of the turret hatch for several days. Until it was cleared, men referred to this intersection as the corner with the dead guy in the tank, which quickly became shortened to Dead Man's Corner.

I will never ever disagree with a veteran who was there, but . . . Maybe someone can explain this. Don Burgett, in his book, A Screaming Eagle in Normandy, described a firefight against Germans across a road leading down to the river. That would describe the road to Carentan perfectly. However, he mentions a light tank coming along out of the bushes and and providing Burgett and his small group fire support until the tank ran out of ammo. The tank commander reported he ran out of ammo, and that he would go get more and bring help. Burgett yelled "don't forget about us" and he yelled back that he wouldn't. Burgett wrote that the tank left on the right side of the field and turned, and the tank was hit by an 88 and destroyed. He said he felt bad because the commander was such a nice guy. And that this was the tank and commander referred to at Dead Man's Corner. The only catch is that I've read about a column of tanks, not just one, and if you were out of ammo, would you turn towards German-held Carentan?
