D-Day, the 6th of June, 1944, marks one of the most pivotal moments in modern history. It was the day when Allied forces launched the largest seaborne invasion in history, landing on the beaches of Normandy in France during World War II. This audacious operation, codenamed Operation Overlord, was meticulously planned and executed with the aim of liberating Nazi-occupied Western Europe and turning the tide of the war in favor of the Allies.
