D-Day, the invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944, is the beginning of Operation Overlord. The Western Allies will launch the largest amphibious invasion in history. This is an effort to liberate mainland Europe from Hitler’s Nazi occupation during World War II. Hitler already took the Rhineland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. He has his eye set to conquer Britain as well as Russia, gaining strength by the day. Nazi Hitlerism must be stopped at all cost. The fate of the World lies in the balance.
