Troops Storm The Beach Of Normandy On D-Day

On June 6, 1944 156,000 American, British and Canadian troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, a 50 mile stretch of coast in France. This military action was one of the most intense amphibious military assaults ever enacted and in order to get three military forces on board it required months of planning along with a campaign of deception to throw the Germans off of the intended invasion target.

The assault lasted from June 1944 to August of the same year, and by the end of the assault northern France was liberated from the Nazis. This was the beginning of the end of World War II and by the same time next year the war was all but over.
