    D-Day Normandy 1944 INVASION ___June 6th.

    NORMANDY 1944
    On June 6, 1944, a date known ever since as D-Day, a mighty armada crossed a narrow strip of sea from England to Normandy, France, and cracked the Nazi grip on western Europe. Within hours an armada of 3,000 landing craft, 2,500 other ships, and 500 naval vesselsóescorts and bombardment shipsóbegan to leave English ports. That night 822 aircraft, carrying parachutists or towing gliders, roared overhead to the Normandy landing zones. They were a fraction of the air armada of 13,000 aircraft that would support D-Day.
