Caption: News of D-Day landings. Crowd in Times Square, New York City, USA, reading news of the D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 in France. This electronic news ticker was installed on the One Times Square skyscraper in 1928. Known as the zipper, it consisted of 14,800 light bulbs used to spell out news headlines. The D-Day landings 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.
