      WWII D-Day Normandy .First soldiers on the beach were under fire all the time. They were some of the bravest soldiers the world will ever know. Many gave their lives to stop Hitler and bring peace to the world. I chose this for my 1000th history pin because we can never, ever forget these brave men.

      The opening of the second front was an example of successful military cooperation among the Allies. The invasion of France started on 6 June 1944. To prevent the transfer of German forces from the Eastern to the Western front, the Soviets also launched a major offensive at about the same time (Operation “Bagration”).

      ***TODAY IN HISTORY*** Jun 6, 1944: D-Day. Although the term D-Day is used routinely as military lingo for the day an operation or event will take place, for many it is also synonymous with June 6, 1944, the day the Allied powers crossed the English Channel and landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, beginning the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi control during World War II.

      I am a huge history buff and WWII is no exception. I've read pretty much everything there is on the storming of Normandy. Makes me tres proud that Canada played such an important role at Juno. The liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany came at a bloody price though.
