Thank you! These are some great photos!

If you like this type of imagery, check out Robert Capa. Easily my favorite photographer ever.

This is one of his iconic images from the D-Day landing. I, personally, believe images like this bring out the true emotion and cost of a war. Yeah, we can watch movies like Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan but these are from the actual landing.



And another

i think they were used like a "ceiling" to prevent the landing area from being straffed by enemy planes...

i guess the thought was the enemy planes would become entangled and crash?
