NORTHWESTERN EUROPE: INVASION & LIBERATION
The breaching of Hitler’s Atlantic Wall and establishment of a secure beachhead in Normandy was followed by a campaign of dramatic highs and lows, wins and losses. This gallery illustrates the obstacles experienced by the Allies—from the disheartening struggle amid the dense hedgerows to the German counterattack at Mortain to the major setback in Operation Market Garden. Follow the Allies as they liberate Paris and finally push Germans back to their border.
