The date June 6 seemed like any other insignificant summer day, but perhaps some remembered it as more. You see, June 6, 1944 was D-Day (D-day was just a term used to mean the beginning of an operation). It was the day where over 150,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of heavily occupied Normandy, France to open a long awaited second front and begin to liberate Europe from Nazi control. Though D-Day lasted only one day the larger operation it was a part of, known as the Battle of Normandy, lasted until late August of that year.
