  • On you way to Utah Beach, you can't miss this monument of Major Winters. A true hero of the war he deserved this monument.  more »
  • This memorial was an unexpected surprise on the road between Utah Beach and Ste. Marie du Mont. After having recently watched the HBO TV series Band of Brothers, I found this fascinating.  more »
  • Visited the site as part of a tour, where he disabled the guns at Braecourt. Excellent to see that his actions have been immortalised.  more »

  • I've read the Band of Brothers book and seen the brilliant tv program. So to see this also was a superb!
  • I know of the Brecourt Manor assault from the Band of Brothers series by we ran out of time on the day so imagine my surprise when we stumbled across this monument on the way back to Bayeux. A great statue with inspiring readings. Simple, Heroes all.
  • Unquestionably a great leader and a humble soldier.
  • "Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?" Grandpa said "No...but I served in a company of heroes". Respect to all the allied soldiers who served in WW2...
  • Great man. Great tribute.
