These Normandy beaches and fields still bear the scars of violence that erupted during World War Two on D-Day, history's largest amphibious assault on June 6, 1944.
Commemorations in June 2019 will mark the 75th anniversary since more than 150,000 allied troops invaded France to drive out Nazi Germany forces. U.S. President Donald Trump is due to visit the American war cemetery in Coleville-sur-Mer, which overlooks Omaha Beach, where more than 2,400 U.S. troops were killed on D-Day.
