Since seeing red buttons hanging from the church in the fil The Longest Day Ive wanted to visit.
Finally made it and loved the place.
Just a small town/village but the first one liberated in WW2,theres a very good museum and a few small restaurants as well as the memorial to US parachutists and the church with a dummy dressed in WW2 combats hanging from it as Mr Steele did in real life in the war.
Loads of sign boards all over town showing then and now, maybe Im over enthusiastic having waited so long and we were only there a few hours but.....made my year.
