🇬🇧 This photo has been posted on other pages many times. It’s a great ‘then and now’ photo. I’ve never posted it before (i don’t think after like 4,000+ posts its hard to keep track 😂) but I just saw it on Facebook and was inspired to share it. D-Day veterans then and now sitting where they sat on that special day where they landed the first blows against evil in the campaign to free western Europe. Respect to those lads. [i dont know who took either photo or who combined them but respect to them as well] #history #wwii #ww2

During the battle of Mortain, Typhoons devastated German tank and mechanized columns attempting to reach the French coast – 7 August 1944. The battle, known as Operation Lüttich to the Germans, was a disastrous German counter offensive ordered by Adolf Hitler in an attempt to halt Allied gains from Operation Cobra. German generals had warned Hitler that the attack would not succeed. The German attack initially met with some success, but within a day advance was halted and the Americans regained the initiative. Nearly all the German tanks massed for the offensive would be destroyed and the attacking force would be outflanked and trapped in the Falaise Pocket. #history #ww2 #wwii #history
