D-Day 75th anniversary - Normandy landings

Download Wallpaper:

D-Day was a stunning allied landing operation. This day was the beginning of a full-fledged offensive in North-Western France, and subsequently - the defeat of the Germans in the Ardennes and the invasion of western Germany. The opening of the Second Front brought victory for the entire Allied coalition in Europe closer.

History

The Allied landings in Normandy on June the 6th, 1944, have become the greatest landing operation in history, and the beginning of the long-anticipated land operation for the Allies in Europe. ‘D-Day’ was the first stage of operation ‘Overlord’, developed to liberate the North-West part of France, and to maintain further advances towards the western borders of Germany. The landing operation began at night, when thousands of paratroopers floated to the ground in Normandy close to the enemy defenses. A sea landing along a lengthy 80 kilometers of shore became the most dramatic part of the operation. Sector ‘Omaha beach’ was the most difficult part of the shore to conquer, with well-organized German defenses on the high rocks and wide fire-swept beach. An impending sea storm made this landing even harder, slowing down transport vessels, preventing effective ship naval bombardment and stifling air support. At great human cost, the allied forces stormed the beach strongholds, securing the landing area for tanks and engineering companies.
