    Just came across. Thought it was pretty cool and hard hitting the way they backdrop the devastation to regular life now. I added a few I found that weren't on the site.

    "These incredible before and after pictures show the true horror and heroism of a day that changed the world 72 years ago.

    On June 6, 1944, Allied soldiers descended on the beaches of Normandy for D-Day, in an operation that marked the beginning of the end of a devastating six-year conflict and the eventual victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two.

    In a mission described by wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill as “undoubtedly the most complicated and difficult that has ever taken place”, D-Day was the beginning of an 80-day campaign to liberate the region which involved three million troops and cost 250,000 lives."

    I LOVE this type of stuff.

    here I am standing in a trench dug by the red army during WW2 to fight and fend off the germans in Odessa. These trenches are all over the place in wooded areas.

    Being a big history fan, just standing in places like this always makes me think of the horrors the people who were in them felt and saw.

    Hey @LaserT ,

    Great pics!

    This one always gets me. 72 years later and the bomb craters are still there. I can't even begin to imagine the hell those guys went through on that day.
