Found in a french flea market - a Top Secret 'how to' guide to D-Day.<br />
<br />
Fascinating top secret documents and photos of the extensive planning that went into the Normandy invasion have emerged after 72 years.<br />
<br />
Incredibly detailed plans of Nazi defences, high resolution photographs, weekly intel reports and even analysis of the German weapons they were likely to face are included in the sale.<br />
<br />
One photo taken at zero feet shows German troops scattering across a beach as a low-level RAF aircraft sweeps by to capture the plethora of anti-landing obstacles.<br />
<br />
Other images show the famous coastline with key cliff-top targets that had to be destroyed either before or on D-Day itself.<br />

The archive is being sold by C&T Auctions of Kent.
