Today is the 68th Anniversary of D-Day

It was June 6th, 1944 that signaled a change in fortunes for Allied forces in World War II. 68 years ago today, Allied forces (U.S., Canada and Britain) launched the largest amphibious attack in military history on the beaches of Normandy, France.

Germany had occupied France and had heavily fortified and booby-trapped the coastline to prevent an invasion. Tens of thousands of troops stormed the beaches on that day and encountered fierce resistance. Thousands of lives were lost, but the Allied forces prevailed and soon would take back France.

Less than a year after D-Day, Germany surrendered.

It was a very important event in history, and few people are still alive that were there that day and experienced the horrors of war on a scale not seen since.

To those who were there, thank you for your service. Thank you for your bravery.

Best of WCRZ
