Normandy landings

The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.

This is a personal picture from when I visited Pont D'Hoc, one of the beaches they landed on for D-Day. This bomb crater was about 2 miles inland and one of the hundreds upon that area.

D-Day and Peace Day

British artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss created this stunning tribute to those who died on D-Day by depicting fallen bodies onto the beach. They used large, human sized stencils and raked up the sand to create the impressions. They started out with a group of volunteers, around 60 people, and when locals found out they contributed. It's estimated that 500 people took part in the artwork. Read the full article here:
