The Flickr account PhotosNormandie has just posted more than 4300 photos of the Normandy Landings of June 6, 1944, this decisive date of the WWII.

This impressive collection is the result of a collaborative project that began in 2007, bringing together thousands of photos from the Archives Normandie 1939-1945, the Municipal Library of the City of Cherbourg-Octeville and the American archives. It invites users to complete, comment, locate and identify photographs, making it possible to better document the Normandy Landings archives.

Glad you like. I watched this elaborate multi cd set on all the battles of ww11 and all the horror of that era that went with it, all real film clips, and did my opinion on the Americans change. Id almost say the Americans over all others and the industrial complex gave the Allied forces the leading edge over the Axis or else we would all be walking in goose steps..

Just imagine what that was like. great photos..

I noticed the piss poor equipment those poor tough old bastards (young then) had to deal with. look at the bottom of their worn out soles on their boots! Killing and dying without even decent footwear.. Christ!

What a bloodbath.

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately.
Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something.
They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful,
so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better
not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."
-Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924)28th President of the United States
