[ORIGINAL CAPTION] One of the many B-26 Martin Marauders ofthe 9th AF is shown over the coast of France during the early morning giving a cover to the
landing craft shown on the beaches below. These hard-hitting medium bombers
gave cover for the greatest airborne troop carrying armada ever assembled, then
furnished an air umbrella for the landing craft as the final phase of the Battle for the Liberation of Europe got under way.
