D-Day Landings in WWII Normandy

During the D-Day invasion, American troops and their allied partners courageously assaulted the German-occupied cliffs using grappling hooks and ladders. The small town of Arromanches was ground zero for the D-Day invasion. Officially named the Memorial for Peace, it puts the Battle of Normandy in a broader context. You start with a downward spiral stroll, tracing (almost psychoanalyzing) the path Europe followed from the end of World War I to the rise of fascism and into World War II. You’ll get a thorough look at how World War II was fought — from individual weapons to floating airports to the two-ton V-I — the unmanned predecessor of today’s smart bombs — to the D-Day landings.
