Commemorating 70 years since D-Day June 6, 1944
This Friday, June 6th marks the 70th Anniversary of the Normandy Landings, best know as ‘D-Day’. One of the most important days in our history and one we should commemorate.
Codenamed Operation Neptune - the Normandy landings were the beginning of the Allied effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation. It took place in the early hours of June 6th 1944 and was the largest seaborne invasion in history. It involved a year of planning and lasted 85 days and was carried out in absolute secrecy and succeeded in deceiving the Germans completely.
The numbers involved in D-Day are simply staggering and involved every department of the military.
Over 156,000 Allied troops landed in Normandy, principally made up of 73,000 American, 61,700 British, over 21,000 Canadians, 3,000 Australians as well as countless other nationalities.
Over 11,000 aircraft were made available with over 14,000 sorties flown
Operation Neptune involved an incredible 7,000 vessels
Over 1,200 naval combat ships
In excess of 4,100 landing ships and landing craft
Approximately 736 ancillary craft
And 860 merchant vessels
