Photo: The first wave of American troops lands on Omaha Beach.
Omaha Beach, June 6, 1944: The first wave of American troops lands at dawn. Robert Capa took over 100 photographs during the landing on Omaha Beach. Unfortunately, a darkroom technician, eager to see photographs of the invasion, dried the film too fast. The heat melted the emulsion, ruining all but 10 frames.
