[quote](Based on the Band of Brothers series Episode #2)

In the predawn darkenss of June 6, the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions were air dropped behind UTAH Beach to secure four causeways across a flodded area directly behind the beach and to protect the invasion's western flank. Numerous factors caused the paratroopers to miss their drop zones and become scattered across the Norman countryside. However, throughout the night and into the day the airborne troops gathered and organized themselves and went on to accomplish their missions.

At dawn, some elements of the 101st Airborne were at Le-Grand-Chemin preparing the assault to Ste-Marie-Du-Mont when the sound of four Germans 105mm cannons started. The US intelligence did not know that, in a large farmhouse called Brecourt Manor, a mile or so north of Ste. Marie-du-Mont, the German 6th Parachute Division had dug four pits into which they each placed a 105mm gun. This gun battery was perfectly placed to fire shells onto Utah beach. On the morning of 6th June 1944, the US 4th infantry division landing on Utah Beach was receiving heavy fire from the four german cannons and the invasion was compromised. The 'E' Company, 506th PIR, 101st airbone division, led by Lt. Winters, received the order to put the battery permanently out of action.
