D-Day: Today is 67th anniversary of WWII invasion at Normandy

Source: www.army.mil

On this day in 1944 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end the Allies gained a foot-hold in Normandy.
