Caption: D-Day landings. US assault troops in a landing craft behind its protective shield as it nears a beachhead on the northern coast of France during the D-Day landings. Smoke in the background is naval gunfire supporting the landing. US troops landed at Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. 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.
