The decisive phase of the landing of June 6 to 14, 1944 told by headgear.

From 6 to 14 June 1944, Normandy, the fate of the world will play out. The first decisive phase of the landing beaches of the Allies lead to the stagnation to Caen. The allies succeeded their incredible gamble: Establish a beachhead in Normandy to defeat Nazi Germany.

The soldiers left on the battlefield and the headgear, and person devices tell us a story. Each helmet has a story; each helmet is attached to a place and time of landing. It is also the story of these men, these anonymous soldiers, their encounter with the great moments of landing.
