History

The name Huppain stems from Norse/Norwegian Oppheim, reflecting the general Viking history of Normandy.

The town was captured by Royal Marines of No. 47 (Royal Marine) Commando in Operation Aubery during the Normandy landings and used as the terminal for PLUTO (Pipe-Lines Under The Ocean).[2]
