    I am a huge history buff and WWII is no exception. I've read pretty much everything there is on the storming of Normandy. Makes me tres proud that Canada played such an important role at Juno. The liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany came at a bloody price though.

A U.S. Army soldier cleans his M1903 bolt-action rifle in a camp in England shortly before the Normandy invasion. Although the U.S. Army had adopted the semiautomatic M1 Garand rifle in 1937, a large number of M1903s were still being issued in 1944. Martin K. A. Morgan, author of The Americans on D-Day: A Photographic History of the Normandy Invasion, due out in a few weeks, explains why M1903s were still in use on D-Day.
