On June 6, 1944, Allied troops from the U.S., Britain, Canada and France, stormed the coastline of Normandy, France, taking the occupying Germans by surprise. The attack was the largest single-day invasion of all time, with over 130,000 troops arriving by air and by sea in one day.

D-Day is very important in American and European history. Americans celebrate Memorial Day every year. They celebrate all the solders who fought in WWII in Europe and the Pacific realm to defend freedom. It is important to remember the sacrifice of so many young solders who died to fight against tyranny and dictatorship. I am European and I understand how important it was to have allied forces unite and form a united front to counterattack the German army in France and elsewhere in Italy and Africa. If it wasn't for them, we would probably have had to undergo 40 years of Communism or Nazism. Europeans are very quick at pointing fingers at Americans and criticize the current administration. The fact is that if it was not for American forces, WWII would not have ended in our favor.
