On this 70th anniversary of D-Day, I have put together some websites that really should be seen.

When I hear D-Day I get the visuals, sounds and emotions of beaches, blood and chaos. what those men went through is unbelievable to me.  To have to get out of a landing craft into the sheer hell of bullets whizzing by and buddies slumping over in the water amazes me.  I think of the move Saving Private Ryan, arguably this generation's best attempt of portraying what D-Day was really like.  

Here is a great collection of information, pictures and video of the historic day.

Normandy, France, Then and Now.  Shows many pictures from D-Day, and then those some sites today
