The battle of Vermot

Vermot, Dun-les-Places

On 26 June 1944, Maquis Camille's, set up behind the Vermot's Castle, was attacked by the enemy. Battle raged and the château was burnt down. The maquisards counterattacked with the support of British SAS paratroops. At nightfall, the fighting ceased but the enemy continued its campaign of terror and savage Nazi repression rained down on Vermot and Dun-les-Places.
