The landing beaches in Normandy. Flight over France. This monograph is the first of a new collection that presents the reader with an original vision of the place through aerial photographs that highlight the chosen subject. In this book, a historical reminder of the Atlantic Wall and Operation Overlord (with a map) places the landing beaches in their context of the time.
Then each of the 5 beaches is presented: Utah Beach, Omaha Beach (Hoc Point and Artificial Ports), Gold Beach, Juno Beach and Sword Beach. Then the book addresses the first liberated cities: Sainte-Mère-Eglise, Bayeux, Caen and Saint-Lô. Finally, the most important places of memory (cemeteries) are presented. A list with coordinates of museums, memorials ... completes the whole. The book is accompanied by a detachable panoramic.
