3 Reasons Why You Should Always Remember What Happened on June 6th, 1944 — D-Day
It’s the Decisive Turning Point of WW II
On June 6th, 1944, Nazi Germany was caught by surprise when the Allies launched Operation Overlord, a massive amphibious military operation that marked the beginning of Western Europe’s liberation from Nazi rule. That day was called D-day. Led by General Dwight Eisenhower, over 156,000 Allied servicemen stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, driving the Nazis away in one of history’s greatest battles.
Top Reasons Why You Need to Learn About What Happened on June 6th, 1944
Today, only a few witnesses and veterans who fought along the Normandy shores are left to tell the events that transpired on D-Day and the days that followed. When the last of them passes away, the world may no longer hear first-person accounts of our soldiers’ bravery. In remembrance of D-Day’s 78th anniversary this year, Breast Cancer Car Donations invites you to look back and learn about what happened on June 6th, 1944.
1. It’s the biggest amphibious invasion in history.
Operation Overlord took years of planning — four years to be exact. The invasion involved 156,000 servicemen from Great Britain, the United States, and Canada. Moreover, thousands upon thousands of ships, landing crafts, military vehicles, and planes were mobilized to back up the troops on land.
The Allies had to devise a plan to trick the Nazis into thinking that they had a different invasion target. The deception involved thousands of fake equipment, misleading radio transmissions, double agents, and phantom military forces. The Allies led the Nazis to believe that they were going to attack Pas-de-Calais, an area in France that was closest to Britain, and other German military posts in Norway. This made it easier for them to storm Normandy and defeat the Nazis at a cost of thousands of lives.
2. It played a pivotal role in ending World War II.
If not for the Normandy invasion, the Nazis would have most likely taken more lives and territories and would continue their tyranny over the countries they conquered. Fortunately, General Eisenhower and his colleagues’ plan succeeded, despite the one-day delay due to bad weather conditions. In less than a week following the invasion, the Allied troops were able to successfully secure the five beaches in Normandy that were formerly occupied by the Nazis.
Although the attack itself did not end WW II, it significantly weakened the Nazis’ grip on power. Consequently, the Nazi troops grew weaker from the succeeding attacks by the Allied forces from the west and the Soviets from the east. World War II finally ended when the Nazis surrendered in May 1945.
