Source Rationale:  This source shows the aftermath of D-Day.  It is important for our research because it gives us an artist’s perception of D-Day and not just a soldiers.  This painting is called “Soldier in Verville-Sur-Mer, Normandy” by Alexander P. Russo.  It was painted in 1944 which makes it a primary source.  It fits in with our other sources very well because it gives more than just one person’s perception on the events that took place on June 6, 1944.  It points us in a new direction because it shows the soldier how tired he is after fighting.  The direction that it is pointing us in is that the soldiers were not strategically placed.  We found this source using the internet.
