55- D DAY MAP OPERATION OVERLORD

The beaches of Normandy are the place where the Allied Forces Landing took place in WWII. More than 60 years after the D Day, the Normand Coast and its seaside resorts are nowadays peaceful but remain deeply rooted in the landscape as an important turning point of France History

 Sword Beach was dedicated to the British Army and was the place where landed the 177 French soldiers of the Kieffer Commando  that belonged to the 1st Special Service Brigade commanded by Lord Lovat famous thanks to the bagpiper Bill Millin. This moment was immortalized in the movie “Le Jour le Plus Long” (the longest Day)
