Sainte-Mère-Église

This may be the most photographed church roof in the world because of the well known incident involving paratrooper John Steele of the 505th PIR whose parachute caught on the spire of the town church. He hung there playing dead for two hours before the Germans took him prisoner. Red Buttons played the role in the movie “The Longest Day”.
