Objectif Sainte-Mère-Eglise

D-day American paratroopers - Written by the Airborne Museum
So much more than just a book: this commemorative work, produced for the first time in conjunction with the Sainte-Mère-Eglise Airborne Museum’s outstanding collection, retraces the epic journey of the victorious troops of the 82nd and 101st airborne divisions from their inception to their combat missions in Normandy, Holland, Belgium and on to Germany. Many documents and artifacts from the Museum's collection illustrate the pages of this account of the paratroopers' perilous mission, the accomplishment of which was crucial to the success of the allied invasion of Normandy. The sacrifices, made by the American paratroopers, remain one of the greatest military achievements of the D Day landings and the battle of Normandy. On June 6th 1944, the destinies of those men and the small village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise were entwined in perpetuity. 172 PAGES

6th June 44 OVERLORD - Comic strip

Mister KIT; Serge SAINT-MICHEL - Ed OREP
As a good drawing is often better than a thousand explanations, what could be better than a Comic Strip to tell the tale of Operation Overlord and the Allied Landings in Normandy ? Without wishing to give a parody of a famous phrase printed by an equally famous newspaper read by young people aged 7 to 70, it is clear that comic strips are read by a very wide public.

SAINTE-MERE-EGLISE : an American sanctuary in Normandy

Antonin DEHAYS- Ed OREP
On June 6,1944 the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise was placed in the forefront of the greatest military operation ever seen either before or since. From that date on, a date synonymous with hope, the renown of this village went far beyond its borders. What are the reasons for this contributing renown ? Hollywood has undoubtedly helped in poopularizing this iconic site, but what really happened on the square of the village and elsewhere on the night of D-Day? How many days did the battle last? How fierce was it? Would the story suddenly stop in the days after the fighting? New fact: this work revisits a chapter which is little known yet fundamental to this great story: handling the dead during and after the battle followed by the creation of great temporary military cemeteries arund Sainte-Mère-Eglise. The presence of 13,000 Americans fallen in this tiny area would have a profound impact on the views and the lives of the natives. For Sainte-Mère-Eglise and its inhabitants, the unthinkable had become unforgettable. format : 200x265 mm 256 pages

The beaches of the D-DAY landings

Yves LECOUTURIER - Ed Ouest France
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.

NORMANDY44

Jean QUELLIEN - Ed OREP
One of the major confrontations of the Second World War began when Allied troops landed on the coast of Normandy. Twelve weeks of vicious combat in the hedgerows, in the cornfields of the plain around Caen and in the region's ruined towns and villages were to determine the outcome of the war on the Westenr Front and precipate the fall of the Third Reich. Normandy was to carry the scars of battle for many years. Its martyrdom was the ransom to pay for the final victory.It is fitting that the sacrifice of a region and its inhabitants be forever linked in our memories to the sacrifice of those young men who came from over the Channel and over the Atlantic, and who now rest inpeace forever in this land they came to liberate.
