Airborne in Normandy - 1944
Diorama shows US airborne troops landing in Normandy.
At night of 5/6 June 1944, as a prelude to the landing in Normandy operation an airborne troops assault was made. The work is inspired by the events from St. Mere Eglise town described in a book and depicted in the movie "The Longest Day".
It is a "loose" presentation of the subject , as despite the quite "idyllic" atmosphere, there is also an unexpected gathering of German military equipment:
- Tiger tank
- Flakvierling anti-aircraft gun
- Anti-aircaft searchlight with a generator
- Wehrmacht post
