D-Day Memorial: 02 of 04
It’s been 70 years, time to pay homage again to the many heroes who gave their lives in or suffered in their surviving of the biggest amphibious invasion in history. The website below is a brilliant source of info on the day.
On 6th June 1944, the fortunes of the modern world shifted when Allied forces stormed the Normandy coast in the biggest amphibious invasion in history. In the years since the outbreak of World War II in 1939, Hitler had seized control of most of Western Europe. This was the Allies’ all-or-nothing attempt to break his grip and push the Nazis back to Berlin. It was codenamed ‘Operation Overlord’ – and would begin at H-Hour on D-Day.
