June 6th., 1944.
Sixty-five years ago today, the Allied armies invaded Europe. Pictured above is the loading in the UK of Allied troops and equipment for the assault.
Hundreds of thousands of acts of bravery were performed by mostly young men from nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Australia, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, France, Greece, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Poland. What acts? That Tuesday morning, almost 200,000 soldiers and sailors put on their uniforms, and made their rendezvous with destiny - they put ashore. This became the legacy of our civilization throwing off the chains of tyranny.
Very nice full screen panoramic views of D Day sights.
