Title

Normandy landings

Description

In the sky, parachutes are floating down from aircraft and landing in the distance. Tanks from either side are engaged in battle. Black and white striped landing craft are disgorging their troops onto the beach. Many of the landing craft are engulfed in flames, as soldiers in brown uniforms move onto the beach. In the foreground, a soldier with a flamethrower advances up the beach.

Label reads “112”; signed by the author; caption reads “6 GIUGNO 1944. Uno dei più grandi sbarchi che le storie delle guerre ricordi. Normandia (Francia) gli anglo-Americani invadono il continente europeo.”
