FRAGMENTS | Robert Capa

On June 6, 1944, a momentous event unfolded as the Allies launched their invasion of Normandy, France, marking the commencement of what is widely regarded as the largest offensive in history.

The initial assault involved the armies of the United States, Great Britain, Canada, and the Free French forces. However, as the weeks progressed and the operation proved successful, additional forces from Poland, Czechoslovakia, Greece, and the Netherlands joined the Allied effort. Meanwhile, the armies of Australia, New Zealand, and Norway provided invaluable air support.

Notably, Robert Capa, as the sole photographer present in the area from the very first day of the invasion, captured a series of photographs that now stand as an exclusive testament to that historic day.
