La Ligne de démarcation ~ The Demarcation Line at Ligueil

There is a new web site that’s online dealing with the Second World War demarcation line and the liberation of Ligueil in the South Touraine, Loire Valley, France. It links to my previous posting on the sign that was errected on December 3, 2011, in the presence of Marisol Touraine, MP, President of the General Council.

    Is there a map that shows the entire demarcation line in close detail anywhere thanks? (at least through the Loire).

      Hi, I’ve not been able to get a copy. Though there must be versions available. It would be best to contact the Mairie at Tours and they may be able to assist.
