American soldiers wading from the Coast Guard landing barges on D-Day. The Allies initially landed on a heavily Nazi fortified 50 mile stretch of beach in Normandy, France.

160,000 Allied troops were led by General Dwight D. Eisenhower who said the famous words “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and over 9,000 Allied soldiers were killed or wounded. The exact number killed is still unknown.

Such a powerful photo of D-Day.
Date & Place: at Normandy Beach in Normandy France

Today is the 74th anniversary of D-Day. Leading to the liberation of France, forces from the U.S., Britain and Canada joined to storm the beaches of Normandy - a turning point in WW2 in Europe.
