Historical Background:
On the 10th of June 1940, German XXXVIII Army Corps crossed the Seine River at Vernon and 46.Infanterie Division arrived in the village la Heunière. On the 11th of June, from the Pacy forest, the French made a counter-attack with four companies of the 4th RDP (régiment de Dragons portés) and some Somua tanks of the 13th Dragons. They captured quickly the farm of la Haie des Granges and the wood and castle of Brécourt. The company under the command of Cpt de Vandière attacked La Heunière, repelling the Germans out of the village, but the Captain was killed in this action. The church tower was destroyed because there was a German machine-gun inside. In the evening, the 4th RDP was ordered to withdraw to Pacy-sur-Eure.
