What is the correct name of the 2d Ranger Battalion's landing
point at D-Day, Pointe du Hoe or Pointe du Hoc?
Both place names appear in print and are in a sense correct. The
confusion arises because the local name for the area, Pointe du
Hoc, is an old Norman name while the Parisian French spelling is
Pointe du Hoe.
