American Cemetery at Colleville Sur Mer
Situated above Omaha Beach, a place where the American military suffered staggering casualties on D-Day, the American cemetery at Colleville-Sur-Mer contains the remains of nearly 10,000 service members who died during the Normandy campaign. With marble crosses and Stars of David stretching as far as the eye can see, the cemetery is a solemn, breathtaking experience that all Americans should share..
D-Day
Operation Overload of June 6, 1944, brought together the land, air, and sea forces of the allied armies in what became known as the largest invasion force in human history.
