It is very amazing, and I recommend it highly to anyone who visits
Normandy.  I'd seen reproductions all my life, but the sheer _scale_ and
_size_ of the thing can't be conveyed in photos (same problems as book-size
reproductions of wall-sized frescoes).  And you see so much walking along
the thing.
