D-Day Mulberry Harbour in virtual reality.

If you’ve ever wondered the Mulberry Harbours – the artificial harbours used at D-Day – worked, the following link offers a remarkable 3D  view.

“The D-Day landings have been recreated as a virtual world to allow a new generation to experience the Invasion of Normandy using 3D displays and virtual reality headsets.

French researchers painstakingly scanned and recreated the landing craft, gliders and even the artificial harbour, known as the Mulberry harbour, for the virtual invasion recreation.

The team today revealed their work as part of the seventieth anniversary of D-Day and the Invasion of Normandy.”
