    Interesting but unfortunately inaccurate in the first paragraph...

    Normandy, France - Beginning at 00:15, in the darkness of June 6th, 1944, General Maxwell D. Taylor's paratroopers of the 101st Airborne Division became the first Allied soldiers to touch French soil, and for 33 successive days they carried the fight to the enemy. This was the beginning of the Allies' airborne trail through Nazi occupied Europe.

    My bold.

    Or am I incorrect in thinking that the attack on Pegasus Bridge was the scene of the first allied soldiers on French soil for the Normandy invasion?

    I think you will find you are correct!

    Yes, I had noticed that. What about the SAS teams dropped in prior to D Day as well?

    Anyway, anyone been here?
