It is very hard to write a review about something that is so moving. The grounds and memorials and kept in pristine condition, and it is easy to access all areas of the cemetery amnd memorial. The views back over the thousands of white crosses over the beach, or back over the hills, just strengthen the gratitude that millions of people the world over owe to these brave souls who lost their lives around the coast of Normandy in pursuit of freedom from invaders. This is not just about Americans, but about what people will do in times of horror for one another.

Very historical and takes your breath away to see so many crosses lined up in perfect rows of those who gave their lives for freedom. The museum is free and very interesting. Omaha Beach was beautiful and hard to imagine such tragedy occurred there. You really must include this on your trip to Normandy!

If anyone wants to know the true definition of bravery, one needs to do no more than spend time at this tribute to bravery. Americans should be very proud of this memorial and to the young and what they unselfishly did to guarantee the freedom of citizens of another country.

Breathtaking and very emotional
