This project was made to commemorate and celebrate all soldiers that fought our wars. Both the ones that made it out and those who didn't.
The scene is meant to represent a more realistic view of what war looks like. It isn't as heroic as portrayed in some movies. It's a bloody, gory mess. It takes a particular kind of person to see a scene like this and just press on ahead. We chose to depict the D-Day landing in Normandy, France to show all of this. It was an amazing and awful act of bravery and butchery on both sides.
This project was made for a bi-monthly build contest over on the /r/Minecraft section of Reddit. We were awarded the third place on this occasion.
