It’s easy to get caught up in the spectacle of war—the mechanics, the adventure—but standing on a bluff, overlooking a beach where 2 000 young American men gave their lives for countries and people they didn’t know, I regain my perspective. The Normandy American cemetery has 9 387 graves of men from Vermont, Wyoming, North Carolina and all other US states—none connected to mainland Europe.
