The Cambridge American Cemetery holds 3,812 American war dead. Most died in the Battle of the Atlantic or during the air bombardment of northern Europe.
We went there on a cold December day, about two years ago. It was a somber, quiet place.
Movies that glorify the battles of the second World War weren't filmed here. But those who came back from the war, like my father-in-law, remember those who didn't, those who were left behind in cemeteries like this one in East Anglia.
