No, not the two famous one, but two minor.

I'm doing an historical research about the Normandy Campaign and among the many information, events and operations, trying to understand the tactical/strategical influence of two minor Bridges on the Orne River/Canal: Pont d'Hérouville (map 1, 34.030 to 33.029) and Pont du Bac, Colombelles (map 1, 33.029 on the Orne River).
The first is on the map (of this wonderful wargame, bdw) and according to my research was destroyed July '44, the second was build in wood, 1942-43 by German 716th ID, and used to move some tanks to the beach front on 6th June and still intact in July '44.
But there are not historical nods on books I own or online (at leats, I've not found them).
Now THE question is: Had these two Bridges a minimal influence on the military operations in 1944?
Do you know there are Official Records, Canadian, British, German, etc, that talk about them or read something about them?
Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Filippo.
