After the landing of the allied forces on the Normandy coast, two long months of fighting were to take place in the local countryside. The Normandy Victory Museum is dedicated to this period, otherwise known as the “Battle of the Hedgerows”.
Through 2 000 m² of reconstructions you’ll be able to march alongside the American soldiers as they fight the German backup divisions. Imagine civilian life in 1944 as you cross over a road in wartime Carentan. You’ll see different period military vehicles including a genuine 1943 American GMC, a D-Day landing craft or even a British FV 432 tank which was used to transport troops.
