The Battle of Normandy, also known as D-Day, took place in 1944 during World War II, when the coastline of Normandy in France was invaded by twelve Allied nations. This detailed infographic depicts exactly how much effort, material, people, and time was put into this series of attacks and carefully-planned fights, as well as the results of the battle.
Joe Rosenthal's Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in this vintage graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist's Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen. (AP Photo/Joe Rosenthal) #
