This original illustration by Lotza depicts the iconic monument to the American soldier in Saint-Nazaire, located in front of the submarine base, a work that recalls the city’s history during World War II. Saint-Nazaire is a port city in the Pays de la Loire region, located at the mouth of the Loire River. During World War II, Saint-Nazaire was heavily bombed and occupied by German forces. The city’s harbor was also the site of a major military operation by Allied forces, known as the “Saint-Nazaire Raid,” which resulted in the destruction of the outer harbor and the floating dock.
The American Soldier Monument, shown in this illustration, was erected to honor the American soldiers who helped liberate the city in 1945. This impressive statue depicts an American soldier with his rifle, looking up to the sky. This work is a reminder of the important role played by the Allied forces in the liberation of the city and the importance of solidarity between nations. This poster will be a wonderful addition to any art collection or for anyone interested in the history of the city of Saint-Nazaire.
