D-Day, June 6, 1944
This was the day we begin to invade France. 150,000 men will be put in 5000 plus ships, to cross the canal, and invade at the peninsula of Normandy, not Calais. This is an allied effort. We push them back, liberate Paris in August of 1944. The Italian campaign is coming to an end with the liberation of Rome at about the same time.
