The Liberation of Trevières
Trevières, which was still in German hands since the American landings on Omaha, but, liberation was near. General Gerow’s 5th Corps accelerated its advance to the south of the bridgehead on 9th June. The 2nd Infantry Division, which had landed on 7th, arrived at the town on 9th June and came up against the German defenses. While 38th Regiment crossed the River Aure to the north, 9th Regiment crossed to the east. A simultaneous attack by both forces that night led to the village being totally cleared of resistance by dawn, the forces of 352nd Division withdrawing towards the River Elle.
