Remarkable color photographs from before and after D-day

Rare color photographs taken by Life magazine photographer Frank Scherschel in mid-1944 have recently been made public. They show American troops preparing for the D-day invasion, the war’s devastation to a French city, and celebrations of victory. You can see a number of the images in this article from Britain’s Daily Mail and this one from The Daily Mirror.
