NORMANDY BEACHHEAD

After the Storm ...

   Ships of many classes lie beached and grounded after a violent storm struck the "artificial harbor" installation off of Omaha Beach, Normandy on June 19-22, 1944. The view is from the bluffs just above Colleville. The line of sunken blockships at the top of the photo is the protective breakwater (code-named the "Gooseberry") for the harbor (code-named the "Mulberry"). Associated Press WirePhoto, from the Webmaster's collection.
