Arriving on Juno Beach
While the tide was out at the time, it may have been easier for these Canadian soldiers to cross the dunes on Juno Beach. This was one of the five primary landing locations on D-Day. In the back, there’s Bernieres-Sur-Mer, a coastal village, but no weapons were pulled.
Robert F. Sargent captured this still. As the chief photographer, he chose to call it “Death’s Jaws,” which is fitting. This is one of the most common photos of the D-Day landing, and it shows soldiers from the First Infantry Division of the US Army rushing behind that Omaha Beach ship.
