Establishing a successful beachhead in Normandy was the beginning of a long road to victory in Europe. The fighting in the Normandy hedgerow country was some of the most fierce of the war. The summer joy of liberating Paris quickly became the winter nightmare of the Bulge. But with the spring came the crossing of the Rhine and the final thrust into Germany. In an intimate amphitheater, a 5-minute film will take the visitor on that yearlong crusade across the continent. A final exhibit -- The Cost of Victory -- allows the visitor to ponder the unfathomable losses suffered by all sides in this greatest of all global conflicts.
