The Normandy Landings
D Day

The Normandy Landings, also known as D-Day, was one of the most significant military operations of World War II. It took place on June 6, 1944, when Allied forces launched a massive amphibious invasion on the beaches of Normandy, German-occupied France.

This significant event marked the beginning of the liberation of Western Europe from the Nazi yoke. The landing beaches, such as Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Gold Beach, Juno Beach and Sword Beach, have become symbols of courage, sacrifice and resilience.

D-Day involved thousands of Allied troops, including troops from the United States, Britain, Canada and other nations, and massive air and naval operations in support of the invasion. Despite the challenges and high casualties, the success of D-Day paved the way for the liberation of Europe and the ultimate defeat of the Nazi regime.

Today, June 6 is commemorated every year in Normandy and around the world to pay tribute to the courageous men and women who participated in this decisive operation and to remember the sacrifices made for freedom and peace.
