FRAGMENTS | Robert Capa


On June 6, 1944, the Allies invaded Normandy in France and began what is considered the largest offensive in history. Initially, the armies of the United States, Great Britain, Canada and the Free French forces participated in the attack, but in the following weeks and in light of its success, the forces of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Greece and the Netherlands also joined, while the armies of Australia, New Zealand and Norway provided their support from the air.

Robert Capa was the only photographer who was in the area from the first day of the invasion and therefore these photographs constitute an exclusive record of that historic day.
