Port-en-Bessin-Huppain, a strategic site for Allies to free Normandy

A small fishing harbor in the west of Arromanches, the villages was between Omaha and Gold Beaches. It was a special target to conquer in the Operation Overlord.

The battle of Port-en-Bassin occurred between 6-8 June 1944, the main objective was to secure a zone that was a future terminus for a Pipe Line Under the Ocean (PLUTO) who run from Isle of Wright (UK) to France. This would support later the Allies with the much needed petrol.
