The historical blog

In Normandy, the Second World War did not stop on DDAY. In the months that followed, la Manche still experienced fierce battles: the Battle of the hedges (Hedgerow Hell), the offensive of la Haye du Puits, the battle of Saint-Lô, Operation Cobra, the breakthrough of Avranches. Why were so many cities razed to the ground? How did the allies regain control? And what was the daily life of locals during these weeks in wartime before the Liberation?

Our blog is regulary enriched with specialized and didactic articles written by our team of historiens and enthusists. We also give the floor to specialists of the Second World War but also to locals who paid a heavy price for the landing.
