Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fleury-sur-Orne is a commune in the Calvados department in the Basse-Normandie region in northwestern France. Fleury-sur-Orne, forms part of outlying Greater Caen, composed of 18 communes and 198,023 inhabitants.Until 1916 Fleury-sur-Orne was known as Allemagne (Calvados) after the Alamanni tribe which once guarded the ford across the Orne. During the First World War this name, meaning in French Germany, became inconvenient and embarrassing for the inhabitants (unlike those of Allemagne-en-Provence in Southern France). The Town council therefore decided on 23 August 1916, to change the name and to call it Fleury-sur-Orne in memory of the commune of Fleury-devant-Douaumont, a commune of the Meuse (in 1914: 422 inhabitants, school, church, town hall, 13 tradesmen, 10 landholding farmers), which was destroyed in 1916.show more
