PREPARING FOR INVASION

Preparing for Invasion ...

   A harbor full of men, equipment, and landing craft prepare for the invasion of southern France. Taken on August 24, 1944, LSTs and LCIs choke an unknown port as they're loaded. Note the barrage balloons flying over the area to deter low-flying fighters. Associated Press WirePhoto, from the Webmaster's collection.
