To this place, this is the case. And it's tragic breath of an army in disarray and the heroism of soldiers engaged in a ruthless struggle. The fact that Poles make their currency of the room divisions panzer SS the fiercest (Der Führer, Das Reich so sadly known for Oradour and Tulle) is particularly moving and symbolic. The Museum is sober and extremely educational on the conduct of the battle. The film with the testimony of the survivors returned to the scene two decades later is touching. Hospitality is a passionate, who knows how to share the spirit of the place. A place unknown, in the shadow of the great sites of d-day and which is worth a visit.

Really important history learnt during this visit. Hadn't realised how pivotal this battle was in the grand scheme of the war. Really enjoyed how they explain the progression of the attacks. Worth a visit!

Best museum in the normandy. Every other museum on the beach just tells the same and same again. They are all Allied-coloured and do not report neutral. (Yes, there are also some good ones :-) ) Really good and well explained about the front they built around the germans. Well documented! Thanks!

Lovely views, excellent though small memorial. Very interesting and informative Musium. Nice that it seems to change to display and talk every few years.

Fantastic views from one of the high points overlooking the battle fields known as the Falaise gap. Very moving war memorial
