Prior to D-Day, World War II had been raging across the European continent for over four years. Since Adolf Hitler’s forces invaded Poland on 1 Sept. 1939, most of Western Europe had fallen under Nazi control. The Allies knew they would have to invade the continent and attack into the heart of Germany to break Hitler’s grip on Europe and defeat the Nazi regime. Operation Neptune/Overlord, commonly referred to as “D-Day,” would be the invasion to secure a foothold in northern France and allow for the final offensive. The Normandy invasion would be the largest combined air-sea assault landing in history. This massive feat would finally enable the Allies to deploy forces on the continent, of sufficient size and scale, to bring about the beginning of the end of Hitler and his Third Reich.
