UTAH BEACH AMERICAN MEMORIAL
The World War II Utah Beach American Memorial is located
at the termination of Highway N-13D, approximately a mile and a half
northeast of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont (Manche), France. This monument commemorates the
achievements of the American Forces of the VII Corps who landed and fought in the
liberation of the Cotentin Peninsula from June 6, 1944 to July 1, 1944.
The memorial consists of a red granite obelisk surrounded by a
small developed park overlooking the historic sand dunes of Utah Beach, one of the two
American landing beaches during the Normandy invasion of June 6, 1944.
