Yep, the 70th anniversary of D-Day!
Brave soldiers, brave photographer!
i cannot imagine the terror. sheer terror of that day and the days that followed.
I googled the photographer. What an interesting story...his life and the wars he covered.
Ditto VP.. Robert Capa was a fantastic photographer, perfect tribute Kate.
Omaha Beach, 06:45Robert Capa shoots one photo after another, although he, like the other men of the 16th Infantry Regiment, crouches behind a wooden barrier and hopes that the mine attached to it does not explode.Translation of a timeline from Die Zeit this morning. That's your photo, Kate.
Seventy years. And such astonishing bravery from them.
I remember because my aunt Hannah lost her fiancee on D Day - he was killed aboard one of the ships on the crossing. I'll never forget how devastated she was.
I cannot imagine a scene like this although my father was there, running one of those boats like those in the background.
I thought it was you in the teaching trenches.
How special that you posted a tribute.
love the tribute!
