Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the Pointe du Hoc, Ouistreham, Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Arromanches ... All names entered the History some June 6, 1944 and now engraved in all memories. That day, after four long years of occupation, the Allies gained a foothold in the land of France and committed, as part of the Overlord plan, the final struggle against Nazi tyranny. First step in the liberation of Western Europe, the Normandy landings will remain forever as one of the highlights of the Second World War. Steles and memorials, blockhouses of the Atlantic Wall, remnants of artificial harbors, military cemeteries today remind us of the scale of operations in the summer of 1944 and their vital importance. This guide, largely illustrated with period documents and color photographs, offers you to discover, sector by sector, locality by locality, all the high places of the D-Day, but also less known places. It is embellished with original maps, a series of "close-ups" offering detailed explanations, pages "glance" dedicated to certain cities or sites.
