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.

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.

Normandy 44
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.

When the allies created fashion
On 6 June 1944, by liberating Europe, the Allies would have a lasting influence on fashion and change the world’s perspective of the uniform. Leather pilot jackets from the US Air Force, denim garments from the navy, cargo pockets from the airborne troops…The American soldier fascinates with his bad boy look, in sharp contrast to the "Prussian" severity of the uniforms of a German army in full retreat. The Allied generals were also aware of the importance of image and clothing style in terms of communication. Montgomery was inseparable from his iconic and "ever-so-British" duffel coat, while Eisenhower established a modern image with the shortened jacket to which he would give his name. In the Pacific, MacArthur paraded about in his famous Ray Ban aviator glasses, associating them with a powerful and relaxed image. General or just a soldier, the liberator was appealing due to his "look". This work presents the origin of this "military" style through the surprising history of some of the most quintessential Allied uniforms which, over time, have become fashion icons.

No better place to die
The battle for La Fière bridge
As part of the massive Allied invasion of Normandy, three airborne divisions were dropped behind enemy lines to sew confusion in the German rear and prevent panzer reinforcements from reaching the beaches. In the dark early hours of D-Day, this confusion was achieved well enough, as nearly every airborne unit missed its drop zone, creating a kaleidoscope of small-unit combat. Fortunately for the Allies, the 505th Regimental Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division hit on or near its drop zone. Its task was to seize the vital crossroads of Ste Mere Eglise, and to hold the bridge over the Merderet River at nearby La Fiere. Benefiting from dynamic battlefield leadership, the paratroopers reached the bridge, only to be met by wave after wave of German tanks and infantry desperate to force the crossing. Reinforced by glider troops, who suffered terribly in their landings from the now-alert Germans, the 505th not only held the vital bridge for three days but launched a counterattack in the teeth of enemy fire to secure their objective once and for all, albeit at gruesome cost. In No Better Place to Die, Robert M. Murphy provides an objective narrative of countless acts of heroism, almost breathtaking in its you are thereA" detail.
