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.
