Flyers asking civilians to leave Caen - 1944-June 6th and 7th

Recommended Posts

I've recently purchased 2 copies of this flyer launched on Caen by the USAAF on 6th and 7th of June -1944 before the bombings by the 8th USAAF.

Unfortunately, time has done his work and they're not in a nice condition but they stay nice pieces of D-Day history I'm happy to share on the forum.

Thanks a lot ! Great website ! Here's the one I've  ! It says : first dissemination by aircraft on D.Day, last dissemination by aircraft : on D.Day +1




By the way, this website will help me to find some other documents, .next purchase will probably be an original copy of the ones disseminated by the USAAF over the last german resistance points in Cherbourg to obtain their surrender.
