  • Thanks Kevin and Ethan. The significance from that video for those unfamiliar is it illustrates private John Steele who landed on the church top of the first village in Normandy liberated by the United States.

  • Thanks Ethan. That was a terrific question because until you quizzed me on silk's relation to the war, it all went right over my head. And that church was a nicely hidden trivia sight as well because it's most noted moment (iconic as it is) takes place at night so the image doesn't resonate like say Monument Canyon in John Ford movies. Thanks for keeping the faith in me. I was a slow study on that one.
  • Well,we finally got there, and all the answers are in.
    Great fun with this one, particularly Question 1!!


    1./ Where is this, and what happened here?

    ..
    ANSWER

    Sainte-Mere-Eglise
    Normandy, France

    A famous incident involved paratrooper John Steele of the 505th PIR,
    whose parachute caught on the spire of the town church,
    and could only observe the fighting going on below.
    He hung there limply for two hours, pretending to be dead,
    before the Germans took him prisoner.
    Steele later escaped from the Germans and rejoined his division
    when US troops of the 3rd Battalion, 505 Parachute Infantry Regiment
    attacked the village capturing thirty Germans and killing another eleven.
    The incident was portrayed in the movie The Longest Day by actor
    Red Buttons.
