#1

Coutances is freed only July 28th by the Americans coming from périers,Saint- sauveur-lendelin and monthuchon . Resistances German is marginal. But the city, already destroyed in 60 % by bombardments, is almost empty.

 

The taken back city, a part of the troops Americans come down up to the bridge of soulles to go towards gavray.

Martin you "took the works right out of my mouth", for that's exactly what I was going to say. I took love the before and afters. It is always so sad to see destruction, but heartwarming to see how humans carry on and put everything back together.
