Maps Indicating Extent of the Normandy Invasion

Subject

The 362nd Fighter Group flew hundreds of missions leading up to, taking part in, and breaking out after the Invasion of Normandy

Description

This map shows where and how D-Day was carried out by Allied forces. It also shows the front line position right before General Patton broke through the line with his Third Army. Major successes on the ground were due in large part to their air counterparts who flew air interdiction and close-air support missions before, during, and after the Invasion at Normandy.
