Normandy's Most MISDROPPED PARATROOPERS at Graignes | HIstory Traveler Episode 201

Much has been made of the misdropped paratroopers in Normandy. In reality, most land relatively close to their drop zones with the exception of a group from the 507th PIR of the 82nd Airborne who were dropped over 20 miles away from their intended target. In this episode, we'll be exploring the site where the men of the 507th made a stand against the 17th SS at Graignes.
