The people who took part in it deserve some good recognition.
Operation Overlord was one of the biggest invasion forces in history, and it was also the biggest amphibious operation in history.
|The Canadians also landed on Juno Beach. The Canucks actually pushed further inland that day than any other army taking part in the invasion!|
|The British landed on Sword Beach.|
|Omaha Beach was a tough nut to crack. It was taken by the Americans and it saw the heaviest casualties out of the 5 beaches.|
|Gold Beach was also taken by the British.|
|Pointe Du Hoc was tricky because of it's cliffs.|
Also, while we're on the subject of WWII, I ordered a Flames of War Late War Strelkovy Platoon, which should be along either today or tomorrow.
