Who interested in military history has not heard about it, read about it or even studied it in detail:
D-Day - The Allied Landings in Normandy, June 6, 1944.
Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Sword Beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach and places like Carentan, Ste-Mère-Église, Vierville-sur-Mer, St-Laurent-sur-Mer or Colleville-sur-Mer went went down in the military history of the World War II.
The landing beaches in Normandy attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, who come there to relive the history of the greatest amphibious landing of all time, which is still so tangible today.
And indeed, Normandy still offers an enormous number of freely accessible fortifications, gun emplacements and bunkers on the landing beaches and in the hinterland. More than 30 museums provide an excellent overview of the armament and equipment of the opponents and allow detailed insights into the individual phases of the 78 days of fighting. More than 700 monuments and memorials on the landing beaches and in the villages and towns in the hinterland reflect the great gratitude of the Norman population to their liberators, which continues to this day. Above all, however, it is the numerous military cemeteries that leave a lasting impression.
This Battle of Normandy guidebook describes on a total of 350 pages all the important monuments, museums and military cemeteries in the landing areas of Normandy.
