The Bocage is an area covering the southern and western part of Normandy. It is made up of many small irregular fields bordered by the hedgerows that give the area its name.
Bocage hedgerows have thick stone banks, formed when the fields were cleared in antiquity, topped by dense hedges of trees and bushes. While the hedgerows are excellent for keeping cattle from straying, they are almost impassable to vehicles and even to troops on foot they present a major obstacle.
