U.S. Navy photographer: An original b/w press photograph of American vessels off the coast of Normandy on June 12th, 1944. Back with describing text. Photo size 20.5×25 cm. Frame size 33×43 cm.

The invasion of Normandy, which was set in motion on D-day June 6, 1944, is still history's largest amphibious operation. More than three million Allied soldiers - among them approx. 800 Danes - and more than 5,000 vessels crossed the English Channel within a brief span of time and thereby initiated the overall operation, called “Overlord”. With the Allied liberation of Paris on August 25, 1944 the German Wehrmacht was conclusively beaten in France.
