On June 6, 1944, Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, on “D-Day” as they began the liberation of German-occupied Western Europe.

World War 2’s Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious military operation in history involving more than 6,000 landing craft, ships and other vessels that carried 176,000 troops, left England in the early morning hours for the trip to France.

In the surprise invasion attack, the allies suffered minimum loss, apart from Omaha Beach, and succeeded in cutting a 29-mile wedge in the Cherbourg Penninsula. Within three months, the northern part of France would be freed and the invasion force would be preparing to enter Germany.
