The landings were the first stage of Operation Overlord – the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe, and were intended to bring World War Two to an end.

The invasion of Normandy was the largest amphibious assault ever launched. Over 150,000 troops landed on D-Day.

By the end of D-Day, the Allies had established a foothold in France. Within 11 months Nazi Germany was defeated.
