Synopsis

February 1945. The war is over in eastern France but in the West, entrenched in six fortresses built along the coast, the 75,000-strong German troops are ordered to keep fighting at all costs, even if it means destroying entire towns and sacrificing the lives of thousands of people.

On 14 April, General de Larminat, appointed by de Gaulle, launches the Atlantic campaign to recapture these strategic locations from the enemy.

A little-known episode taking place at the end of the Occupation.
