Client: The Army Heritage Center
The 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy was remembered by the Allies who landed there—Americans, British, Canadians and French—in addition to the citizens of many other European nations. The landings have come to symbolize the “beginning of the end” of the Second World War in Europe. On the 6th of June 1944 Americans jumped from aircraft over Normandy and disembarked from landing craft onto the Omaha and Utah Beaches. Staff members at A.D. Marble & Company have been undertaking a long-term project in collaboration with the Army Heritage Center to document the landscape of Omaha Beach. This documentation has emphasized historical research with original documents and photographs and an analysis of modern landscape conditions. These posters were presented at the Army Heritage Center for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, and were created to present some of this research and to honor the service and sacrifice of the Normandy veterans.
