Nice pics Vlad!   The site of some incredible history and sacrifice.

In your travels, are you jumping the pond next week by any chance?

I would like to. Macungie is calling:)

Sorry not this time. If I will have power enough to line up the stars I will make a jump to Trucktoberfest. Too long to make plans yet.

So many KIA and wounded on Omaha Beach, Ike was seriously close to ordering the evac of the troops. Close to 4900 killed and wounded in less than 6 hours.

Thanks for the pictures. It is so hard to imagine the contrast from what we see here back to 1944.

OK  Enjoy the rest of your travels and keep the camera full of film!

It's important to remember that the success of the D-Day landing depended so much on what was going on at the Eastern Front. Had not so many veteran German divisions been allocated there, the outcome might very well have been different. It was a massively long front that required the allocation of huge numbers of German soldiers. The Allies knew that, hence the reason that massive amounts of equipment ranging from jeeps, tanks to airplanes were given to the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease.
