Caption: D-Day landings crossing. Ferries being used to transport troops and vehicles from ship to shore in the English Channel as part of the D-Day landings. These are so-called 'Rhine Ferries', developed and manned by the United States Navy Construction Battalion (SeaBee). The D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest seaborne invasion in history. They successfully liberated the Normandy coast of Nazi-occupied France, contributing to the Allied victory in World War II. During the landings, the Allied force of some 156,000 (from the UK, USA and Canada) took some 12,000 casualties and suffered more than 4000 dead.
