History in photographs: 6th June 1944, D-Day

Today marks an anniversary in World history, when in 1944, Allied troops mounted the largest-ever invasion when they landed on the Normandy beaches.

Lots has been written in the decades since that time about the sacrifices that were made and the contribution that this made to ending the Second World War, but I think it’s the photographs from those events that really tell the story. Then, as now with conflicts around the world, photographs add to the narrative of the written or spoken word, complementing each other to show the true nature of war.

Photography has and I believe always will be, a fundamental part of creating lasting memories – long after each of us has gone.
