Online columnist Marc Johnson/The Johnson Post is touring Europe. Here is his column from Port en Bessin, Normandy:
We’ve all heard the classic stereotype frequently attached to the French; they’re cool – even cold – detached, formal to the point of rudeness, and some might say arrogant and, of course, they don’t like foreigners. The stereotype is, like most stereotypes, largely poppycock. The next time I encounter the stereotype I’m going to remember this little stone monument marking a road hard by the River Orne in Normandy. Full column here.
Question: Do you have a relative who took part in the Normandy invasion?
