A tribute to the fighter pilots of WW2 and LIFE Magazine. LIFE covered the entire war, along with other publications like TIME, YANK, etc. LIFE, however, captured some of the most quintessential iconic photos of the war courtesy of photographers such as Robert Capa and Alfred Eisenstaedt.

“In honor of Walt Disney’s Parade of Dreams anniversary today, I thought I’d post this ‘photo mosaic’ I did some time ago of thousands of photos I’d taken over the years of POD put together to form one of the press release photos of the parade! Miss you POD, and THANK YOU to all the many talented performers I was able to capture over the years that I shot the parade. I loved every minute of it!” -Britt Dietz

Today’s airbrushed style pinup photo is a tribute to the brave men who stormed the beaches on this day in 1944 (June 6) 70 years ago during Operation Overlord, more commonly known as D-Day. The allied invasion of occupied France was the largest (at the time) invasion force in the history of mankind. With over 5,000 ships and over 14,600 aircraft supporting the invasion, the invasion turned the tide of the European War bringing in 326,547 troops and 54,186 vehicles making a second front against the German expansion of Europe. Nearly 4,500 men were lost during D-Day, mainly at Omaha Beach. Here is Kayla wearing some of the uniform items that these soldiers would have carried onto the beach in this D-Day Tribute.
