D-Day has been the greatest and bloodiest invasion of history. This event happened on June 6 1944 in the second great war in Normandy France. This was an invasion planned by the british, american, and canadian armies. They knew what was waiting for them there so they planed two attacks. The first one would be from 12:00am from 3:00am by the american airborn troops. They would send paratroopers in all the Normandy area. Misson codename was "Operation Neptune". The next attack would be in 6:00am by sending all soldiers into the beaches. Mission coadname was "Operation Overload". The invasion succeeded but really disappointedly. In the beaches thousands of men died by the machineguners in the bunkers plus mines in the ground. In neptune many plains crashed by alltilery fire and many soldiers landed in many wierd places by getting lost in Normandy. With D-Day the north american armies started war against germany. The american forces would start their plan of taiking France, Then Holland, and then Berlin for for christmas. But they werent those guys who took Berlin but the russians. D-Day was the day that changed america. Some people said that if they wouldnt help the nazis would win.
