On June 6, 1944, 50,000 Allied troops in 3,000 landing craft poured onto the beaches of Normandy, supported by thousand of other vessels and aircraft, thus embarking on the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe. Code-named Operation Overlord, the D-Day landings signaled the beginning of the end of Hitler's Germany. Operation Overlord was, and remains, the largest amphibious assault ever conducted, and is one of the most fascinating and evocative battles fought in history.D-Day Operation Overlord Day-by-Day is a chronological approach to the landings, allowing the reader to see at a glance the preparations made for the invasion of Normandy as well as the key actions on the beaches and farther inland. From the initial landings on the morning of June 6 on beaches Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah, and Omaha, to the point whereby all five of the landing forces had joined up on June 12, the action is meticulously covered.
