During World War II the Battle of Normandy (June 1944 to August 1944) resulted in the liberation of Western Europe by the Allies from the control of Nazi Germany. The battle, Codenamed Operation Overlord, began on June 6, 1944. The first day, DDay, was to witness no less than 156,000 British, American, and Canadian forces landing along a 50-mile stretch of the Normandy region in France - at that time a coastal area that was heavily fortified with German artillery.
