On June 6, 1944, the united forces of Canada, Britain, and America made history as 156,000 soldiers landed on five beaches, Juno, Gold, Sword, Utah, and Omaha, along 80 kilometers of the heavily fortified coast of Frances Normandy Region. This event has gone down in history as one of the largest amphibious military assaults. Despite the mass casualties resulting from this event it was a huge victory and is celebrated as the mark of the beginning of the end of WWII.
