June 6 marks the 70th year anniversary of D-Day in 1944, when the Allied soldiers landed on the beaches of Normandy. That monumental moment turned the tide against the Axis powers in World War II. Since then, those beaches that were ravaged by war are now used by tourists and locals as a place to soak up the sun. It is hard to imagine how these beautiful places were once crucial points of battle on D-Day.
