The National Archives holds thousands of photographs that document the June 6, 1944, invasion of Northern France. While nearly all are black-and-white, there is a small collection of original color images that were taken during the pre-assault phase. These rare shots provide historians and collectors a unique perspective of the people who made the invasion and the equipment they used.
