The tiny village of Hébécrevon a few kilometres west of Saint-Lô entered world history on the 25th of July 1944. It was at this spot that the American Army launched Operation Cobra, the offensive that led to the collapse of the German Normandy front. Why the offensive happened at this spot is not hard to guess if you look at the route the hillclimb takes. Coming from the north the terrain suddenly rises sharply near Hébécrevon but remains relatively flat further south. There are also two major roads nearby, the present-day D900 to Périers and the road to Coutances, both important for supplies.
If you drive across the countryside you will find traces of the war everywhere. Utah Beach and Omaha beach where the American troops landed are 45 kilometres to the north of Hébécrevon.
