Expert's answer

On D-Day troops from the UK, the US, Canada, and France attacked German forces on the coast of northern France, on 6 June 1944. It was the largest military naval, air and land operation ever attempted and marked the start of the campaign to liberate Nazi-occupied north-west Europe.

The invasion, if successful, would drain German resources and block access to key military sites. Securing a bridgehead in Normandy would allow the Allies to establish a viable presence in northern Europe for the first time since the Allied evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940.

D-Day was the turning point of the war , it was on June 6, 1944. The Allied forces Attacked and the Americans loss 2700 men themselves. By September they had liberated France Luxembourg and Belgium and then set their sights on Germany. They caught them by surprise before Germany had time to respond forcefully.
