Enjoy an outdoor history lesson of one of the most daring operations by the Allied during the Second World War: Operation Biting in Saint-Jouin-Bruneval.

It consists of three distinct spaces: a lectern 20 meters long on which is told the story of the biting operation (20 panels), a monument dedicated to the British troops and the French resistance and the Charles de Gaulle staircase. (130-step staircase, reminiscent of Major Frost's 130 men who took part in the raid).
