Joe Mann Monument - Best
HIS EXTRAORDINARY COURTESY
AND HIS SPLENDID CONDUCT
WERE A PERPETUAL INSPIRATION
TO HIS COMRADES,
FOR WHOM HE GAVE HIS LIFE'.
This text is on the Joe Mann monument that commemorates the liberation of Best. The monument "Joe Mann" is named after the American Paratrooper. This because of the action in which he protected the lives of his comrades by throwing himself on a grenade.
