It was in this narrow passage that the German divisions piled up to cross the river Dives, in a chaos of equipment and men.
Two passages were possible to get out of "the Falaise pocket" the "gué de Moissy" is the bridges of Saint Lambert sur Dives.
Peaceful bucolic place but so full of history.
Panel text:
"With the bridges of Saint-Lambert, on August 19, 1944, Only this ford remains to cross the natural anti-tank ditch represented by the "Dives". Under artillery fire and relentless attacks from Allied aircraft, thousands of German soldiers rush across this narrow passage. Tempers flared and it was not uncommon to see men coming to blows to force their way through. SS officers, weapons drawn, try to give a semblance of order to the chaos that now reigns. "
