11 June 2013

This August, I'll find myself prolonging my Euro trip (at the expense of my second semester) to tour Paris and other parts of France - in particular, Normandy.
Normandy in Northern France is famous as the 'drop zone' for the Allied D-Day Assault on the Germans in June 1944. As a modern history buff, I'm very much looking forward to this leg of my trip.

Today's Daily Quota is a recent publication in Life Magazine titled 'The Ruins of Normandy: Unpublished Colour Photos From France 1944'.
This series collects 17 rare colour photos from Normandy, including some great shots of the beach landing boats - famously included in all depictions of the bloody Omaha Beach Landings - and some vibrant shots of French villages after they've experienced Allied bombing. 

A fantastic collection, and a real treat for history buffs or curious parties alike.
