A perfect remembrance pilgrimage walk to relive the epic events of this historic Allied Offensive
This Battle of Normandy – via Hill 112 SplashMap features a new Remembrance Pilgrimage Walk. Commemorating the World War Two liberation of Europe, this bold extract from our Battle of Normandy Michelin SplashMap has been enhanced from the original. thanks to our involvement with the Hill 112 Memorial Foundation, Culture Crossings Limited and the SmartT project.
Working together we’ve mapped the pilgimage trail starting from Gold Beach and ending 60 miles away at the place where the decisive withdrawal of German Troops via Hill 226 and Chambois happened. Historical notes, graphic enhancement and regimental emblems adorn the map originally made in collaboration between SplashMaps and the cartographic teams at Michelin.
The ideal overview of the landings, battles and troop movements during the Summer of 1944, this map is an amazing guide to use when walking, touring or driving this pivotal area of France.
Escape and Evasion Maps
Original Escape and Evasion maps of the period were often printed on fabric to support covert operations and resistance behind enemy lines. Escape and Evasion maps remain crucial in the liberation of airmen and in paving the way for successful campaigns today. Now they find their use in relaying the important facts of the Liberation for future generations.
