These booklets were issued to landing craft crews to help them identify the correct place for them to land their troops on D-Day. This book was prepared by the Inter Services Topographical Department (ISTD) in March 1944, and is numbered ISTD 50. Booklet S shows the coast between Franceville Plage and Langrune-sur-Mer (Sword and Juno Beach area).
