Battle of Normandy. June 6th, 1944, 3 PM. The Allies have secured the landing beaches. Nevertheless, Hitler remains convinced that the real landings will take place in the Pas-de-Calais region. The population is now aware that the Allies are on the French ground. Although France and Paris still remain occupied by the Germans, hopes are revived. The Allies advance through Normandy is much slower and more difficult than expected. Many cities, such as Caen or Saint Lô, are bombed to chase out the Germans. After thousands of casualties on both sides, and many among the civilians, Paris is liberated at the end of August. But the war will rage on for another year. Normandy has made the biggest sacrifice.
