Operation Neptune


Or, as it’s more commonly known, D-Day. Usually I do a nice long post about the history of it, or I’ll go into an alternate history or something.  But not today.  Today I read this really nice post about it, complete with pictures!  It’s on Google Sight Seeing, and it’s worth the read.  It’s also worth it to remember the thousands of brave soldiers who lost their lives taking the beach, and defending it.

One day I’ll get a chance to go visit those beaches, there might not be much there anymore, but it’s still a part of world history, recent world history, not something that happened 1500 years ago that no one’s really quite sure how it went down.  There’s first hand accounts of this historic event.
