The town of Saint-James in Normandy is very important historically. Soon after his successful invasion of England, "William the Conqueror" fortified the town against invasion from nearby Brittany. In the 20th century, the U.S. chose to locate their American Military Cemetery at nearby Montjoie Saint Martin. Today, our whole canton belongs to the Battle of Normandy Route, which links Saint James with the Normandy Landing Beaches.
