The Americans on D-Day | Photos

On the eve of the 70th anniversary of D-Day, we bring to you a selection of photographs as seen in The Americans on D-Day: A Photographic History of the Normandy Invasion. Author Martin K. A. Morgan brings an unsurpassed critical eye to each photograph in the book. The Americans on D-Day showcases all aspects of the American experience in the lead-up to Operation Overlord, D-Day, and the + days after the invasion began. The photos in this slideshow come with the original caption, so a reader can see for themselves the level of analysis that is put into each photo. Most of the photos are in the public domain through the National Archives and Records Administration, but even if the reader has seen these photos before they are likely to learn something new from the captions. A full review of The Americans on D-Day will be on Defense Media Network on Friday.
