Yankee soldiers storm toward the beach-sweeping fire of Nazi defenders in the D-Day Invasion of the French Coast.
Troops ahead may be seen lying flat under the deadly machine gun resistance of the Germans.
Soon the Nazis were driven back under the overwhelming Invasion forces thrown in from Coast Guard and Navy amphibious craft. [Courtesy of National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS)(513173)] (Edited: Artistic Blur by Graeme Watson, 2016)
