The name of the town of St-Le has a powerful resonance for American Normandy veterans. Both the German defenders and the Allies were aware that the town was the strategic key to western Normandy. St-Le had already been subjected to a massive bombardment campaign before D-Day, as it formed the hub of the local road network. Major General Charles H. Gerhardt, commander of US 29th Infantry Division that landed at Omaha on 6 June, was ordered to capture the town by D plus 9 (15 June). The scene was set for a trial of strength between the opposing sides that would decide the fate of the Normandy campaign.
