Résumé

On tuesday june 6th 1944, Lower Normandy was the scene of the largest amphibious operation ever carried out in the history of mankind. Over 150,000 men landed in 7,000 ships on the shores of Calvados and Manche to liberate France and Europe from the yoke of Nazi oppression. Two thousand five hundred men were killed on the first day, including a thousand at Omaha alone. From June 6th to August 20th 1944, violent combats raged on the beaches, among the hedges, copses and pastures and on the Caen plain. This book offers readers the chance to discover - or rediscover - this Second World War heritage and the famous beaches of the D-Day landings, now important memorial sites.
