Located towards the eastern end of Grandcamp Maisy, this monster cannot be missed by anybody traveling the coast road. It's brash, it's shiny, it's huge, it's totally inappropriate, it's unbelievable that the Chinese could fob it off on the French!

We were able to see a memorial service here during the Normandy commemoration, which was so touching. They had bagpipes and a beautiful tribute. I would highly recommend seeing it.

In any place of historical military significance there are well meaning reminders of peace and hope. This one was gifted by the Chinese. It's outsized and stands in a little garden triangle at the end of the village. While Pointe du Hoc was very busy when I visited, the World Peace Memorial was deserted. Unsurprisingly.
