Strike Missions: D-Day
An exhilarating breakdown of some of history's most decisive battles. With expert analysis and eyewitness accounts examining the strategy behind the chaos of the war. The Battle of Normandy, also known as D-Day, lasted from June 1944 to August 1944 and resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. This invasion was one of the largest military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. They led the Germans to believe that Norway and other locations were also potential invasion targets. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring, the Allies had defeated the Germans.The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of the war in Europe.
