75 years ago on June 6th, Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower says yes to Operation Overlord, also known as D-Day which was the code name. The Allies invaded the coast of Normandy.

In an article on D-Day, history.com editors say “British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50 mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of Frances Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning” (History.com). And is still being conversed about 75 years later.
