Mulberry harbour

D-Day in Normandy

On June 6, 1944, Allied troops landed on the coasts of Normandy. D-Day marked the downfall of the Nazi Empire and the end of World War II.

In Arromanches-les-Bains, you can still see one of the two temporary harbours, a collection of floating concrete pontoons.

Floating pontoons

The Allies landed material and supplies for the troops via the pontoons.

The smaller caissons were used as floating quays and transport roads to bring trucks, tanks, etc., ashore.
