France's Cotentin Peninsula

This image by Flickr user tim_flickr shows France's Cotentin Peninsula, in Normandy. The beaches of the Cotentin Peninsula formed the landing zone for the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944. Visible on the left edge of the photo is Utah Beach, the northernmost of the five beaches used in the invasion, where the 4th Infantry Division of the US Army landed. The other beaches - Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword - stretch further to the left of Utah Beach.
