Hill 262 or Mont Ormel in Normandy (elevation 262 m), also known as "The Mace" (in Polish Maczuga - because the ridge on this hill resembled a caveman's mace with two bulbous heads) and Mount Ormel, was a vital command post during World War II. It has an excellent view on the area around Chambois and Vimoutiers. It was held by the Germans throughout the war until it was captured by the Polish 1st Armored Division. Its capture, as well as the capture of Chambois sealed the Falaise Gap. In Call of Duty 3, this is the last mission of the Polish campaign takes place, as Bohater and the rest of the tankers fight off the desperate German counterattacks until relived by the Canadians.
