D-DAY

June 6, 2020

The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, June 6, 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II.  Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.  The operation began the liberation of German-occupied France (and later western Europe) and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.
