D-Day - Landing in France - Omaha Beach
American assault troops prepare to disembark their landing craft as it approaches the beach head, Omaha Beach. The smoke visible in the background attests to the massive naval artillery assault, supporting the landing. Snakes of troops wind their way up 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"

General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien
Portrait by John St. Helier Lander of General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien (1858-1930). On the outbreak of World War I, he was given command of the II Corps of the British Expeditionary Force. Praised for his leadership skills during the Battle of Mons, his troops became the British Second Army in December 1914. During the Second Battle of Ypres, Smith-Dorrien clashed with Sir John French over tactics as he felt repeated attacks on the front line was creating unnecessary loss of life
