CARENTAN LES MARAIS

D-Day Experience

WW2 Museums

It was at Carentan/Saint-Côme-du Mont where so much was at stake after 6th June 1944 for the success of the Landings. It was imperative to link the Landing Beaches of Utah and Omaha. For ten days the American parachutists launched a concerted attack on the German paratroopers who had been ordered to defend the town to the last.
Set in the heart of the parachute zone and the battlefield at Carentan, Dead Man’s Corner Museum is located in the former German command post and houses many remnants from the combat.
In a very particular setting, each object, the result of considerable research, tells the individual story of one man. A very different style of museum where the emphasis is placed on the authenticity and quality of the objects displayed.
