This small cemetery holds the graves of British and German soldiers who fell near Bayeux. It is very moving and personal because many headstones reflected not only the name, age, rank, unit served, but personal references provided by the families of the fallen. Inscriptions were...More

A visit to the war cemetary just puts into perspective the sheer scale and horror of these conflicts. We should never forget what the brave generations who went before sacrificed for us. If you've never visited, consider it now.

This cemetery for the British soldiers killed during the invasion of Normandy is less well known than the American cemetery but should be seen first for two reasons. First, as large as it is, it helps to put the American cemetery in perspective. Second, the...More
