Sainte-Mère-Église – Hanging from the Church Tower

This place gain is fame by o airborne trooper named John Steele, who on the D-Day landed in the church tower, and in the next 2 hours pretended to be dead, later he was captured by the Germans but he escaped to join once again the Allied army.

A dummy was putted in the place where the trooper once was, making the place a touristic attraction.

The town is very calm, especially not in the summer time, surrounded by green fields. Is a must see if you are searching for important landmarks from the WWII.
