The Invasion of Normandy started as a landing operation on June 6, 1944 on the beaches of Normandy, France by Western Allied forces during World War II against German-occupied western Europe. The initial assault was marked as D-Day, the largest amphibious invasion in history. 156,000 British, American, and Canadian forces landed on the five beaches of the Normandy region. The Battle of Normandy lasted from June 1944 to Mid-July 1944, resulting in the liberation from Nazi Germany.
