CIMETIERE AMERICAIN D'EPINAL / EPINAL AMERICAN CEMETERY
(FRANCE)




Le cimetière américain d'Epinal est situé sur une plateau libéré par la 45ème Division d'Infanterie américaine le 21 septembre 1944. Ici reposent les corps de 5 255 victimes de guerre des Etats-Unis d'Amérique, tombés au cours de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. La plupart ont trouvé la mort alors qu'ils progressaient vers le centre de la France en remontant la vallée du Rhône, dans les Vosges, dans la vallée du Rhin et à travers l'Allemagne au-delà du Rhin. De plus, les noms de 424 Américains dont les corps ne furent pas retrouvés ou identifiés sont inscrits sur les murs de la Cour d'Honneur qui entourent le mémorial.
