Today (6 June) in 1944 the biggest amphibious invasion in history began when the Allies landed on the coast of Normandy in France. An incredible feat, and a battle which lasted over a month ensued. Although the Nazis fought hard, by the evening of June 6 things weren’t looking too good for them. Especially since Adolf had already started to go completely nutty in his military strategies.
I know it’s geeky but I dig D-Day.
