Normandy


D-Day was undoubtedly "the climactic battle of World War II." But the battle for Europe was not over on June 6, 1944. During the weeks that followed the Germans fiercely resisted Allied advances in Normandy. It was not always clear -- especially to the men on the ground -- that victory was just a matter of time.

For perspective and dramatic stories from the men who were there, browse through this excerpt from Stephen Ambrose's book "Citizen Soldiers":


Heroes of the Battles through France

Fascinating, inspiring stories and details about American heroes of the campaigns through France after D-Day who were recognized with the Congressional Medal of Honor.
