Normandy, France. World War II site of the largest sea-born invasion in history. On D-Day, June 6, 1944, allied forces, led by the United States, Great Britain and Canada launched a massive assault on the beaches of Normandy to establish a foothold on the European continent and begin the liberation of France from Nazi Germany.
By the light of the full moon and a high tide, 156,000 Allied troops landed on 5 beaches on a 50-mile stretch of the Normandy coast and marked the beginning of the end of the war in Europe, with great cost and heavy casualties.​​​​​​​
To this day, people lay flowers on the beaches and cemeteries in Normandy, to honor those who gave the greatest sacrifice.
