You better grab a chair and sit down, Gate, you’re
Gonna hear some news of a military nature.
There never was a finer sight
When all our boys were fixed to fight
On D-Day, D-Day, D-Day, D-Day.
(Nat King Cole with the Nat King Cole Trio)
The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, were the landing operations on 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the Allied invasion of German-occupied western Europe, led to the restoration of the French Republic, and contributed to an Allied victory in the war.
But D-Day was much more than a military event in history. It was a turning point in the course of World War II and a mayor milestone in defeating Germany. It was crucial to liberating Europe from Germany’s regiment. Today, it is the 70th anniversary of this important day. And a good occasion to give a great THANK YOU to the allied troops who made a free Europe possible.
