Can one of our French members please explain or clarify this for me? Sword Beach included the area at Hermanville. I know the actual town is called Hermanville-sur-Mer (Hermanville on the Sea), but closer to the beach there is an area called le Breche de Hermanville. What would the correct translation be for le Breche de Hermanville? I see "breche" could mean "gap", so I assume it has something to do with that.
