This photograph shows troops from the First Infantry Division wading ashore under heavy fire at the Normandy beach, code-named OMAHA. Here the first landings resembled Churchill's worst nightmares, as unexpectedly fierce German resistance resulted in the deaths of many American soldiers. The troops finally accomplished their mission, however, and casualties elsewhere on D-Day were not as high as had been feared

What is this, the new Call of Duty game? No, this is Omaha Beach, June 1944, when American ships took advantage of low tide to unload huge amounts of war material for the front. That photo is not embellished, retouched or dishonestly angled in any way: That's just how goddamn ridiculously over the top a battle in WWII actually was. They even brought all their battle zeppelins, proving that, once again, the only difference between steampunk fans and history buffs is the stupid goggles and blue hair dye.

During WWII, the Battle of Normandy appeared in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi's Germany control. The battle began on June 6th, 1944 and ended in August 1994. It is also known as DDay where 156,00 American, British and Canadian forces invaded beaches on the coast of France. This attack was planned for many years and involved lots of training for the Allied.
The Invasion of Normandy was the invasion by and establishment of Western Allied forces in Normandy, during Operation Overlord in 1944 during World War II; the largest amphibious invasion to ever take place. D-Day, the day of the initial assaults, was Tuesday 6 June 1944. Allied land forces that saw combat in Normandy on that day came from Canada, the Free French forces, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In the weeks following the invasion, Polish forces also participated, as well as..
A photo of Omaha Beach in Normandy in early June 1944 after the D-Day landings, just gives an idea of the scale of the operation and subsequent equipment coming ashore.

After the Teheran Conference, Churchill contracted pneumonia, followed by a heart attack. He was well enough by Christmas Day, however, to discuss military plans with General Eisenhower (left) and Field Marshal Harold Alexander (second from left) in Carthage. Churchill is shown wearing his famous dragon-emblazoned dressing gown over his even more famous "siren suit"--a one-piece zip-front jumpsuit named for its simplicity in putting on quickly at the sound of an air raid siren

The August 1942 meetings between Stalin and Churchill did not always go smoothly. Berating the British for their failure to come to grips with the Germans, Stalin said that British soldiers would lose their fear as soon as they started to fight. Furious, Churchill replied that he would pardon Stalin's remarks only on account of the bravery of the Russian army. Impressed with Churchill's spirit, Stalin mellowed, and the conference ended on a cordial note.
