D-Day landings. Members of a US landing party helping others whose landing craft was sunk by enemy action off the coast of France during the D-Day landings. These survivors reached Omaha Beach by using a life raft. Omaha Beach saw the fiercest fighting during the landings. 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. Photographer: Weintraub.
