Dick Winters location landing

Post by Dolf van Stijgeren » 19 Aug 2021 17:16

Does anybody know exactly where Richard - Dick - Winters (2nd bataljon, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division) landed on D-Day? It must have been around Sainte-Mère-Église.

Winters has been featured within numerous books and was portrayed by English actor Damian Lewis in the 2001 HBO mini-series Band of Brothers.

Hope you can help.

It was around St. Mere Eglise, but even Winters(or Compton for that matter) were never certain as to where their exact landing locations were.

Surf the internet for various suppositions to his exact location.
