D-Day - Supplies pour ashore

A stunning panorama photograph of a French invasion beach with the channel waters thick with US military shipping, as reinforcements and supplies are funneled ashore following the conquest of the Cherbourg peninsula. Barrage balloons protect the ships from enemy strafing. One balloon still rests on the deck of large landing vehicle. Trucks filled with supplies and troops head inland across the beach. D-Day began on June 6th, 1944 at 6:30am and was conducted in two assault phases - the air assault landing of allied troops followed by an amphibious assault by infantry. The Normandy landings were the largest single-day amphibious actions ever undertaken, involving close to 400, 000 military and naval personnel"

Napoleon gathering the fleet - Invasion of Britain

Decree signed by Napoleon wrote to ordering the meeting of the flotilla at Boulogne - 30th August 1805. From 1803 to 1805 a new army of 200, 000 men, known as the Armee des cotes de l'Ocean (Army of the Ocean Coasts) or the Armee de l'Angleterre (Army of England), was gathered and trained at camps at Boulogne, Bruges and Montreuil. A large "National Flotilla" of invasion barges was built in Channel ports along the coasts of France and Holland (then under French domination as the Batavian Republic), right from Etaples to Flushing, and gathered at Boulogne. The planned invasion of Great Britain however never happened and was eventually called off later in 1805. Date: 1805
