Animated Map: The D-Day Landings

On this day in 1944 the Allies conducted Operation Neptune, better known as the Normandy or D-Day landings during the Second World War. To better understand what this entailed I have linked this animated map.

“After much of Europe had been occupied by the Axis powers for four years, the Allies finally launched their campaign to liberate Western Europe, codenamed Operation Overlord, on 6 June 1944. Over three million service personnel were involved and it all hinged on the success of the Normandy Landings on D-Day.”
