WW2 D-Day Landings Full Boat!

Interesting photo in the way it shows you how many soldiers filled the boats on the D-Day landings. The more famous photos and movies show smaller boats holding 30 max soldiers getting out, here its around 400 Canadian men ready for the invasion ahead. Posing for the picture waving looking rather happy!

Normandy Invasion D-Day Landings, 6 June 1944

The Normandy invasion took place in the Bay of the Seine, on the south side of the English Channel between the Cotentin Peninsula and the port of Le Havre. 

This photo shows the damage left from the invasion, the plane crashed on the beach, the carrier boat still in its landing spot, houses and shops destroyed.
