Paratroopers of the US 101st Airborne Division prepare to board Douglas C-47s at Upottery Airfield on the eve of D-Day. Shortly after 22.00hrs they will set course for Normandy and, after crossing the French coast under heavy AA fire, drop behind Utah Beach to seize key objectives just hours before the largest seaborne invasion in history.

Sergeant BILL TRUE - Fox Company 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR
