This Day in History June 6, 1944

June 6, 1944 the invasion that became known as D-Day began. Some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50 mile stretch of th heavily fortified coast of France's Normandy region. There were more than 425,000 Allied and German troops killed, wounded or that went missing during the Battle of Normandy.

The mission that took place on that fateful day of June 6, 1944 will forever be remembered as D-Day. The mission itself went by code name Operation Neptune. The mission was to land on water and on beaches of Normandy, France. It would be the largest military operation by sea and it would mean a great change would take place in status of the war.

D-Day was very important to World War II. The allied invasion of Europe would be the reason that Germany would in the end be defeated. The allied force of over 150,000 British, American , Canadian and French forces would invade the beaches of Normandy and gain a victory over Germany.

D-Day would mean the end for the Germans and most of all Hitler. The battle of D-Day now forced the Germans to face a two front war one that they had not been successful in WWI and would again not be successful. The end of June 1944 there would be a million Allied troops in France.
