Description

Acc. 236, Series 76B, Box 13, Folder 73, Item 01:United States Coast Guard - WWII,25.3x20.6cm 2517 From: Public Relations Division, U.S. Coast Guard, Washington, D.C. Official Coast Guard Photo Supplies pour ashore for invaders of France This striking panorama of the French invasion beach was made by a Coast Guard Combat Photgrapher from a hillside cut with the trenches (foreground) of the ousted Nazi defenders. The channel waters are black with shipping, as reinforcements and supplies are funneled ashore for the conquest of the Cherbourg Penisula. Balloon barrages float overhead to protect the ships from low-flying enemy strafers. One balloon rests on the deck of an LST. Headed inland are long parades of trucks, loaded with troops and supplies. In rewriting caption, please mention "Coast Guard."
