D-Day Invasion of Normandy

The term D-Day has come to mean many things however the original D-Day represents 6 June 1944 when the Allies began landing in Normandy on the French coast in World War II. Elements of the Invasion actually began before midnight on 5 June, these were paratrooper and pathfinder units, tasked with certain objectives that would assist the Infantry and Armored Divisions as they hit the beaches and moved inland.

The Americans landed at Utah and Omaha Beaches while British and other Allies landed at Gold, Juno and Sword. A naval armada of over 5000 ships crossed the English Channel, carrying over 150,000 soldiers that would go ashore on the first day of the invasion, D-Day.

Paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne and 101st Airborne would have landed on the 5th. Despite being scattered and missing their drop zones by many miles units would form and they would occupy the enemy while the landings began. The 1st Infantry Division and the 29th Infantry Division were to land at Omaha Beach. The 4th Infantry Division and elements of the 90th Infantry Division were to land at Utah Beach.
