American Cemetery

The Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial site covers 30.5 acres in total. It contains the remains of 3,812 of military personnel and houses 5,127 names recorded on the Tablets of the Missing. Most perished in the Battle of the Atlantic or in the strategic air bombardment of northwest Europe. Along the south side are the Tablets of the Missing, and at the far end is the memorial with a chapel, two huge military maps, stained glass windows bearing the state seals and military decorations, and a mosaic ceiling memorial honouring the air forces. A new, 4,000-square-foot visitor centre opened in May 2014. Through interpretive exhibits that incorporate personal stories, photographs, films, and interactive displays, vistors will gain a better understanding of this critical campaign that contributed to the Allied victory in Europe during World War II.
