Allied Pocket of Resistance, a.k.a. the scattering of Airborne misdrops

If you follow the red lines, which indicate major arteries for this area, you can pretty much see where the Allied Pocket of Resistance was located. Starting in the bottom left corner you will see la Haye du-Puits, follow the road all the way over to Carentan in the bottom right corner, then take the road north to Ste Mere-Eglise in the top right corner, and finally go across to Sauveur in the top left. This area was where most of the paratroops landed, they were scattered throughout this entire area. Most of the various units missed their actual drop zones by many miles.
