Back to Normandy

Welcome to Back to Normandy

The beaches of Normandy and the countryside nearby are beautiful, peaceful, and picturesque. But they were not always so – in June 1944 they saw some of the fiercest fightings of the Second World War and some of the most heroic acts of bravery and courage seen on a battlefield. The sheer valor of the men who landed on the beaches of Normandy on that wet and windy morning of the 6th of June 1944 changed the course of history and ensured that the evil forces of Nazism were defeated and that freedom returned to Europe.

Those beaches and the adjoining countryside are visited by many thousands of people of all nationalities.

Each year, all interested, for one reason or another, to see where the action took place or perhaps to trace the footsteps of a member of their family who fought in the Normandy campaign or to see where a particular regiment or military unit fought and won on D-Day. I hope you will be able to help, by sharing your stories, photos, and historical locations. By doing so you will be assisting all those who wish to learn more about World War II and helping to preserve the spirit of those courageous men who fought and died on the beaches of Normandy – the beginning of the liberation of Western Europe. And let's not forget all the airmen and sailors who made this invasion possible in the years beyond. All these men and women commemorated on this website, earn your attention.
