American Troops crouch inside a LCVP landing craft, just before landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6th 1944.

On board a barge, facing Omaha. The sky is leaden, the sea is heavy. Everyone protects their weapon with a plastic case provided for this purpose by the stewardship. A USN and an officer observe the trajectory that brings them closer to the beach.
