Causeways Wide

Part of the mission objectives of the 82nd Airborne Division were to capture two causeways that led across the flooded Merderet River, near the small villages of La Fière and Chef-Du-Pont. These transportation routes were crucial to the advance of Allied forces coming ashore at Utah Beach, and the men of the 507th played a pivotal role in securing these causeways.
