Brecourt Manor

Brecourt Manor was a small farm complex which had the German field artillery situated in the fields of the farm. Lieutenant Richard Winters led members of Easy Company (Band of Brothers) in his famous assault of the German positions using “fire and manoeuvre” to capture the gun positions. Today Brecourt Manor is still owned by the same family and has a new monument to Easy Company on the junction of D14 and the track leading down the lane.
