Interactive D-day Landings Scenes in 1944 and Now

Here is a fascinating study of history during World War II versus today. Peter Macdiarmid has taken photographs of locations in France and England to match with archive images taken before, during and after the D-day landings. The Allied invasion to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation during the Second World War took place on 6 June 1944. Operation Overlord was the largest seaborne invasion in military history, with more than 156,000 Allied troops storming the beaches of France

Thanks for sharing this web site with your readers. It’s a magical look at the past and present. So much in between and thanks to those troops we can view the magic.

Very interesting. Especially to see so many buildings restored and still standing. Thanks, Dick
