It is the day Allied forces launched the long-awaited attack on Fortress Europe, ushering forward a series of events involving millions of people, that would eventually lead to the end the war. The WW2DB team salutes the veterans of World War II, highlighting the experiences of soldiers and sailors who were there on D-Day.
