About World War II and D-Day the allies invasion of Normandy in France.

1944 D-DAY

Cloaked in secrecy, Operation Overlord, the cross-Channel invasion of Hitler's Europe from England by Allied forces, was begun on June 6, 1944. Five French beaches were the spearheads of the invasion, protected by the largest airborne attack in history (900 planes, 100 gliders, 183,000 paratroopers). Landing craft disgorged wave upon wave of Allied soldiers. On bloody Omaha Beach 2,500 men were reported killed, wounded, or missing--but the invasion succeeded, and Hitler's 3rd Reich was doomed.
