Arromanches

Although the Allies did not actually land in Arromanches on June 6th, 1944, the town was liberated that very day. For Arromanches was a highly strategic position. This seaside resort had been chosen by the Allies in 1944 as the location of an artificial harbour which would be used to keep the troops in Normandy supplied with equipment, weapons and ammunition.

The enigmatic shapes which rise out of the sea today, opposite Arromanches, are the actual remnants of Mulberry Harbour B, which helped to ensure the success of the Normandy Campaign and guaranteed Arromanches a place in the history books.
