Normandy campaign map. Military map showing the presumed location of Allied (US and British) and Axis (German) forces soon after the D-Day Landings of 6 June 1944 on the coast of Normandy, north-western France. This was part of a massive invasion that would liberate Europe and lead to the Allied victory in World War II. This map, timed at 24:00 hours, shows the situation as understood by the operations staff (G-3) of the First United States Army Group (FUSAG), and later the Twelfth United States Army Group. These maps and reports were used by US commanders to evaluate the campaigns and to plan future strategies.
