D-Day: Code Name Overlord
It is first light on the 6th of June, 1944, D-Day. On this day, the Allied launched the largest combined land, air and sea operation ever from Southern England to liberated Europe from Hitler and Nazi oppression. Code named Overlord, the entire operation was a tremendous gamble. The element of surprise was paramount and through a tangle of intrigue, the German high command was led to believe the invasion would occur not at Normandy, but at Calais, only twenty miles from England across the narrow Strait of Cover. The assault phase of Operation Overlord was a tremendous victory for the Allies. Six beachheads were established and more than 150,000 men and hundreds of tanks landing in Normandy. The Allies had won their foothold on the continent. Soon afterwards, they were celebrating in a liberated Paris. Yet, 80 days of war and its uncertainty lay between the two events.
