Michelin, No. 102, FIRST EDITION, 1947. Cold. & fldg. 87 x 74cm. Card covers slightly worn, map itself FINE. Cheap facsimile copies of this map abound, but this is an original 1947 Michelin map of the D-Day Normandy landings in June 1944, only three years after the historic event. The coastline stretches from Le Havre, down past Avranches and along the Bay of Saint Michel. The historic notes are in English and French. The American landings at Utah and Omaha are highlighted, so too the British and Canadian beaches ' Gold, June and Sword. The linking of the beach-heads and the break out towards Cherbourg and Caen, etc., are explained and highlighted, along with every other place of wartime significance in this part of German-occupied France, liberated at the cost of so many US, British and Canadian lives.
