Normandy and D-Day

What is D-Day? On this tour, you’ll learn the many details of the day that became a turning point in WWII. D-Day took place on June 6, 1944 when Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy. D-Day began what we now know as the Battle of Normandy, which lasted for three months. Now, we look back at D-Day and consider it the beginning of the end of World War II.

On D-Day, the German troops stormed five different beaches. Out of these, Omaha Beach was the largest. Now a gorgeous seascape that’s difficult to think ever involved militant activity, this beach serves as a reminder of the Allied troops’ turning point in WWII.

We will also speak about the American Cemetery which serves as the final resting place for many American soldiers who lost their lives in combat. Covering over 170 acres of land, this burial site honors more than 9,000 American soldiers.
