Aout 44 Museum - Falaise Pocket - D-day - World War II - France - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com

The Aout 44 museum shows the history of some of the last battles that are directly related to the D-day. After fighting their way from the beaches the Allies had caught a huge part of the German army in the "Falaise Pocket". This museum shows a lot the equipment and uniforms used during the battle, where the German army tried to get out of this "trap".
