Sword Beach was the codename of one of the five main landing beaches in Operation Neptune, the initial assault phase of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944.
Stretching 8 km from Quistreham to Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, it was the furthest east of the landing points and around 15 km from Caen. The initial landings were achieved at low cost,
but the British forces ran into heavily defended areas behind the beachhead. The British landings were the only Allied sectors that faced German Panzers on 6 June 1944.
The landing site was divided into four zones: "Oboe", "Peter", "Queen" and "Roger" (from west-east). The landing forces came under the control of the British Army,
comprising the British 3rd Infantry Division, the 27th Armoured Brigade, British and French Commandos.
