On the evening of June 8, the 101st US Airborne Division strategically held a defensive arc along the southern flank of the VII Corps, extending from Chef-du-Pont to the mouth of the Douve River. Positioned on the division’s right flank, the 502nd Parachute Infantry fortified from Chef-du-Pont to Houesville, with support from the 327th Glider Regiment near the lock and harbor bridges. The 506th Parachute Infantry anchored the defense center on both sides of the approach dam to Carentan, while the 501st Parachute Infantry remained in reserve at Vierville-sur-Mer. The division’s plan included two Douve River crossings, aiming for Isigny’s bridge over the Vire and advancing toward Carentan. The right wing targeted Height 30, strategically positioned on the Germans’ potential escape route, intending to encircle and tighten the grip on Carentan.
