Default Operation Overlord 70 yrs ago & today

WHEN YOU LEFT CLICK ON EACH PICTURE, HOLD IT AND DRAG YOUR

MOUSE GENTLY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT ON THE ORIGINAL PHOTOS AND IT
WILL BECOME THE EXACT SAME LOCATION TODAY -- 70 YEARS LATER.


DRAG IT BACK OVER AND YOU ARE IN 1944 AGAIN. (You need to do this with your mouse or your finger if your device is an IPad.)


A DESCRIPTION OF EACH LOCATION IS AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH PICTURE.

I only see one picture on my ipad. It is interesting that the original buildings still exist.

The luckiest people pictured there were the German POW's. The rest kept fighting.

They fought, and they died, that we might be free. May God bless them all.
