Interactive Map with D-Day Invasion of Normandy

Students may be interested in getting a sense for what combat in the European theater was really like. Most of the pop-ups on the interactive map include oral histories by men who participated in these engagements. Students could be assigned to read several of these (or more likely excerpts, since they tend to be quite lengthy) and asked to write their own fictitious oral history, as if they had participated in one of these battles.This student interactive zoomable map from EDSITEment shows students the locations of major event that took place during WWII in Europe.
