June 6 - 1944 - The Allied Invasion of Normandy

D-Day is one of those historical events which everybody knows about, because of the role the invasion of Normandy played in the course of World War II. Yet its place in popular knowledge probably obscures just how crazy, intense, and hard the fighting was on D-Day itself, and just how much went wrong for the Allies on D-Day. Its overall legacy is deserved, but better appreciated by knowing all that happened in Normandy.
