June 6th D-Day

June 6, 1944, also known as the longest day, was the day that we stormed the beaches of France. Against all odds we (along with our allies) got a foot hold on Europe. From there we were able to push inland. It was truly a remarkable achievement. There are several GREAT summaries of D-day (here, here and here). I highly recommend Stephen Ambrose’s book, D-Day.
