6 June 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, one of the most remarkable Allied wartime operations. The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune - and termed D-Day - were the landing operations that took place on June 6, 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord. It was a bold operation that eventually resulted in the liberation of France - and later Europe - free from Nazi control.
