A study for 88-193-HM.  These men on the deck of the ship awaiting their time to participate in the invasion can only wonder what awaits them at the distant coastline, barely discernable.  The boats suspended on davits above their heads with their dark shapes oddly express the taut, waiting threat of this dawn off the Normandy coast.
