World War II
This was my father's war. He worked at the local bomber plant while in high school, and transported the pilots to the plant. When he graduated, he joined as an MP and saw service in France, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands. I will not post pictures of any German leaders on this board; I will never condone their actions.

Following the July 26 Potsdam Declaration, where Allies outlined the terms of surrender for Japan and promised "inevitable and complete destruction" of Japan if they failed to comply, preparations were secretly under way to make use of the newly-tested Atomic Bomb. Here, the first nuclear device to be used as a weapon, codenamed "Little Boy", rests on trailer cradle in a pit, ready for loading into the bomb bay of the "Enola Gay" in August of 1945. (NARA)

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 war photo that was captured on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), as American soldiers swarmed the beaches of Normandy. The Normandy landing was the largest amphibious invasion of all time, with over 160,000 Allied troops entering France on June 6, 1944. This famous image shows American soldiers as they leave the ramp of a Coast Guard landing boat and enter the frigid waters off Normandy. these men were under heavy Nazi machine gun fire.

D DAY on the 6th June in 1944, 156,000 troops from the UK, US, Canada, Free France and Norway took part in one of the largest amphibious invasions in history. We live in Normandy & it is still very much alive here ! The French suffered so badly after 4 years of occupation & unfortunately much damage was done locally. But they were now free !
The view from the first wave of landing craft heading for Omaha Beach. This was the most fiercely contested of all the beaches in the Normandy landings, with defences that had been relatively unscathed by Allied bombing and German reinforcements inland not far from the beach. #wwii
D-Day, 6th of June 1944, was the beginning of the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II. The largest seaborne assault in history, the operation began the invasion of German-occupied Western Europe and led to the restoration of the French Republic and contributed to an Allied victory in the war.

Cmdr Ed Beach was one of the most decorated and heroic submarine commanders in the US navy during WW2. He was incredibly brave and sank many enemy ships under adverse conditions. I had the pleasure of meeting Cmdr Beach in Andover on numerous occassions after his retirement. He represents all that Americans are and will be again when whenever we need them.
