STLO is one of those words that often appear in crossword puzzles. It's an abbreviated form of Saint-Lô, a French town which was almost completely destroyed during the Battle of Normandy in World War II. A detailed history of the battle is on the iBiblio site at http://ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USA/USA-A-StLo/index.html and a history of the town is on good ol' Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-L%C3%B4
