We must never forget about the men who fought for us.

The Battle of Normandy was fought in 1944 between the German forces occupying Western Europe and the invading Allied forces as part of the larger conflict of World War II. Over sixty years later, the Normandy invasion, codenamed Operation Overlord, still remains the largest seaborne invasion in history, involving almost three million troops crossing the English Channel from England to Normandy in then German-occupied France.

The Normandy invasion began with overnight airborne paratrooper and glider landings, massive air attacks and naval bombardments, and an early morning amphibious assault on June 6, "D-Day". The battle for Normandy continued for more than two months, with campaigns to establish, expand, and eventually break out of the Allied beachheads. It concluded with the liberation of Paris and the fall of the Falaise Pocket.

Many brave men sacrificed their lives that day to ensure that we could live the lives we are currently able to. They should never be forgotten.

I highly recommend Winston Churchill's The Second World War as a must read for anybody seriously interested in the history of WWII. It was awarded the nobel prize for literature, deservedly so. My favorite is the first volume, The Gathering Storm, which is absolutely chilling.
