This year it’s the 75th Anniversary of D-Day

Coming to Sainte Mère Eglise’s Airborne Museum in April 2019

Starting April 1st (2019) a new gallery exposition of posters, letters, textes and maps retracing the history of it all.

From France’s entrance into World War 2 in 1939 to the signing of the Armistice (end of the war) in 1945. Follow the path, that heroic French soldiers took during the second World War. After the defeat of the battle of France in June of 1940, the French Army becomes the Armistice Army which is under the Maréchal Petain’s goverment, basically under the boot of the 3rd Reich Army, Adolf Hitler’s ! no less.


In response to that ultimate humiliation there’s another France that doesn’t want to take any crap from the Nazis and this is the “Free French Army” where Charles de Gaulle tries to rally from London the different French factions to unite against a common enemy.
