Troops land on the Normandy beaches on D-Day

6 June is the anniversary of D-Day and the landing of Allied forces on the beaches of Normandy, France, officially known as Operation Overlord. In 1944, a series of bombing raids covered the arrival of parachute and glider forces overnight; at 6.30am, the first of the Allied forces from Britain, America, Canada, Poland, the Free French and soldiers from other nations landed. Over 175,000 troops landed that day on a 50-mile stretch of coast.
