Just as the British landing beaches at SWORD & GOLD, and mainly Canadians at JUNO, needed to secure strategic crossings through paratrooper action during the night, American Airborne forces landed in the hinterland of OMAHA & UTAH beaches. The daring but ill-fated landing in the town square of Sainte Mère Eglise was carried out by the US 82nd Airborne Division.
However, despite all set-backs, by 04:30 on the morning of 6th June the Stars & Stripes flag was flying proudly over Sainte Mère Église which became the first town in France to be liberated.
