A reprint of Michelin’s historic 1947 map of Normandy, showing the D-Day Landing sites, the subsequent troop movements, and the battle progressions that established an Allied foothold in the region. Coverage extends beyond the five landing beaches (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword): along the coast from Le Harve and the Seine estuary to the western side of the Cotentin Peninsula and Mont-St-Michel, and inland to include the Falaise – Mortain pocket.
Published two years after the end of the Second World War, the map shows the landing beaches, parachute drop points, early memorial sites, relics of battle such as gun emplacements, areas of significant damage, etc. These details are overlaid on the standard Michelin road map of the day, designed for touring.
An inset illustrates troop movements across the region and the line of attack by various Allied units. Accompanying text provides a brief description of the progress of the battle of Normandy, plus an index of historic names and places of interest highlighted on the map. Map legend and all the text are in English and French.
