The Cambridge American Cemetery will open its new visitors' centre to the public on Monday. It has taken five years to complete the project, which was built at a cost of £5 million.
Staff have researched the stories of some of the nine thousand American men and women who are remembered at the site.
When the cemetery first opened in 1956 no records were kept of individuals because the American authorities didn't want to single anyone out.
Now their stories are being told for the first time in a museum on site, which includes interactive screens to research the history of America's role in World War Two. Among those remembered, the identical twin brothers who were left and right gunners on a plane that was shot down. The fighter pilot who survived numerous missions but was hit by a car - looking the wrong way after apparently forgetting that UK traffic drives on the other side of the road.
Guide Arthur Brookes says everyone is celebrated equally
