The invasion was one of the largest and most impressive military invasions of all times. The D-Day invasion was by far the largest water borne invasion in world history, unmatched even today, and, by the changing nature of warfare, probably never again. Hitler needed to be defeated and the invasion began it.
Yes,the allied invasion of France in 1944 was one of the greatest military operations in history.There was so much coordination involved that most people could not believe it was as successful as it was considering all the personnel and equipment involved as well as the dependence on weather related issues.
The allied invasion of France on D Day was probably the most important military operation in history in my opinion. This was a major battle in the outcome of the war, and a huge number of troops fell that day. This invasion will be remembered forever as the greatest battle.
Until D-Day, the Battle of Thermopylae or perhaps the invasion of Troy would go down as some of the greatest military operations in history. D-Day was a massive movement of troops and equipment that the Allies knew would be costly in terms of casualties. However, once on land it was a foregone conclusion that the German army would be defeated and World War II would end in less than a year after June 6, 1944.
I do believe the allied invasion of France on D-Day in 1944 was one of the greatest military operations in history. Reading and hearing about the invasion, as well as watching videos shows that it was an impressively large operation that included a lot of military personnel. It will certainly stick out in history for centuries to come.
