D-Day - Before and After

Author(s): Philip Hamlyn Williams (Foreword by)

Military

D-Day: 6 June 1944, the Normandy landings, and an incredible turning point in the war. Operation Overlord saw Allied forces land on the beaches of northern France, a staggering achievement and the result of lengthy and secretive planning and the application of true technological warfare on the sea and in the air. Within a few short weeks, more than one million men had come ashore, along with vehicles, ammunition and equipment, though the advances came at a terrible price. This collection of photographs from the Mirrorpix archives remembers the lead up to D-Day, the landings themselves, the devastating losses incurred on all sides, and the aftermath as Allied forces moved into occupied Europe.
