In the confusion of the scattered air drop of the 101st Airborne, Lt. Colonel Vandervoort was ordered to turn his 2nd Battalion towards the already-taken village of Ste. Mere-Eglise and abandon his initial objective – a blocking position astride Route 13 to the north. Hedging his bets, he sent a platoon to organize a roadblock in Neuville. The platoon beat a strong German column to the Neuville by only 20 minutes. . .
