General Patton left his calling card on liberating this town
Jul 2019
This whole area followed on from the D-Day landings which cost the lives of so many American, British and Commonwealth service men. I hope that this memorial stands as a continuous reminder to those who were liberated and their beneficiaries today.

Well preserved tank.
Jul 2019 • Friends
Not at all sure what to make of this. Why in the middle of a traffic Island? Patton was in the business of overselling himself but the motorised troops under his command made a significant and dangerous sweep round to break the log jam and other problems up around Caen. We were surprised enough by this in your face collation to pull over and take a look. The Sherman tank is in much better nick than those we have seen at Slapton near home and the one in the yard just outside Roskoff.

General Patton's Memorial

Fitting memorial to the General. Little tough to get to since it is in the middle of a round about, but well worth it.

Well worth visiting
Jun 2018 • Couples
We loved this little town and the respect they show for this memorial and well worth the time to stopover. The charming inn nearby Croix d'Or was such a pretty place and whilst we did not overnight there we would return to stay if we had the opportunity.

A very fitting tribute
May 2018 • Couples
Imposing tribute in a lovely town that has brilliant shopping facilities. Near to the memorial is a modern pool with large fun slide for the kids to slash around. Good restaurants, beautiful church, wonderful gardens on a good day you can see Mont St Michel. Scriptural museum. Worth a visit

Excellent Tribute
Aug 2017
A picturesque setting in small town..a fitting tribute to a man who made such a difference during the war to liberate most of Western Europe. Patton’s 3rd Army was responsible for liberating more towns and villages and covering more territory than any other during WWII. A Brilliant man with some character flaws made the most of his situations...only down side to the area is that memorial is located in the middle of a roundabout

Fitting tribute to an American patriot and liberator
Oct 2017 • Couples
We drove through the area and decided to stop at this memorial. It is a tasteful monument to a great American hero who contributed so much to the liberation of France in World War II. Worth a visit and a stroll in town if you are in the area.

Avranches was liberated by American forces in July/August 1944 and this is a fitting memorial to General George Patton.

Excellent testiment to a great man.
Feb 2017 • Couples
Shame its in the middle of quite a busy roundabout. Your eyes get drawn to it as you approach the roundabout at the top of a hill. Otherwise a great memorial to a great man, stop and park up and give it a good staring at. plenty of parking around the area.
