D Day 1944 Robert Capa (this is NOT a Capa photo: was taken on Omaha Beach by Walter Rosenblum )

Operation Overlord, (also known as D-Day), began on June 6, 1944, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region.  The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning.

Today marks the anniversary of the D-Day invasion at Normandy. Thanks going out to all World War II soldiers whether you were in Normandy or not!
