Sainte-Mère-Eglise, Pointe du Hoc, Ouistreham, Omaha Beach, Pegasus Bridge, Arromanches ; so many names which entered into history on the 6th of June 1944, to remain forever engraved in our memories.

It is enhanced by originals maps, a series of "close-up" views offering detailed explanations, "at a glance" pages devoted to specific towns or sites and a map af the many museums open to the inquiring visitor.
