A unique World War II site in a sixteen square mile corner of south-west England.
Ten miles of coastline, beaches, cliffs, headlands and sand dunes.
The only British location where American D-Day spearhead troops learned the tactics and skills of amphibious assault.
Forgotten for over sixty years, research, exploration and excavation has built up the definitive and detailed history of this remarkable site that was vital to the American success of D-Day, 6th June 1944.
