Battle of Normandy Remembrance Pilgrimage Walk

This Battle of Normandy Map via Hill 112 SplashMap features a new Remembrance Pilgrimage Walk. Commemorating the World War Two liberation of Europe, this is an enhanced extract from our Battle of Normandy Michelin SplashMap. Thanks to our involvement with the Hill 112 Memorial Foundation, Culture Crossings Limited  and the SmartT project.

Starting at Gold Beach

Working together we’ve mapped the pilgrimage trail. This Battle of Normandy Map defines a 60 mile trail. Starting at Gold Beach, going over Hill 112, it concludes at the location of the decisive withdrawal of German Troops via Chambois and Hill 226N (aka MONTORMEL). Historical notes, graphic enhancement and regimental emblems adorn this 1946 Michelin map.

This map gives the ideal overview of the landings, battles and troop movements during the Summer of 1944. It makes it an amazing guide to use when walking, guiding, touring or driving around this pivotal area of France.

What happened there? Al Murray & James Holland discuss

Why do SplashMaps have a Hill 112 variant of our Normandy Overview Map? Hitorian, James Holland and Al Murray explain all in their fabulous ‘We Have Ways’ Pod cast. Listen HERE.

The foundation of the United Nations

We believe these sites (HILL 112 and MONTORMEL) deserve recognition by UNESCO on their World Heritage List. That’s why the D-DAY2DANTE ® war walk was developed by Culture Crossings, to link each of them to GOLD Beach. They were focal points in the Battle of Normandy, thus leading to the foundation of the United Nations (UN) by the victors of WW2.

“The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man.” US General Dwight Eisenhower’s letter to troops before D-Day.

NOTES on the 2021 revision now available in stock:

  • we have placed the Churchill Tank emblem on Hill 112 which clearly commemorates the memorial Albert Figg arranged to maintain there.
  • the museum at Montormel is clearly marked in and branded

1 review for Battle of Normandy Map- via Hill 112

  1. Don (verified owner)

    AT LAST – in the words of Etta James’ song – working with agile SplashMaps, we have 2 maps for “Our Walk Committee’s” charity walk for 70 miles over WW2 battlefields. These indicate (A) why [i.e. this map] & (B) where we will walk from GOLD Beach, via HILL 112, to MONTORMEL – which (in my opinion) marks the destruction (less than 180 miles from Southampton!) of the German 7th Army, and its subsequent flight from France, by autumn 1944. Please send a £5 note (via Royal Mail signed for) to PO Box 1010, Nottingham, NG5 8TF, for a leaflet (for UK only).
