St Marie du Mont

Ste Marie du Mont is situated close to drop zone C for 506th regiment, 101st Airborne. It is close to both the Holdy and Brecourt Manor gun batteries, as featured in “Band of Brothers” which covered the causeways of Utah Beach.

Ste Marie du Mont became the headquarters of the 101st Airborne where some extremely violent action ensued in and around the town on D Day.
