June 6th, 1944

During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from

 June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western

 Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the
battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000

 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a

 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region.

 The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history

 and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a

 large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the

 intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had

 been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the

 Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end

 of war in Europe.

Added Note:

The invasion of France on June 6, 1944 was a triumph of intelligence,

 coordination, secrecy, and planning. The bold attack was also a

tremendous risk. Ultimately it succeeded because of individual soldiers'

 bravery in combat.

I believe there is a daily need for one to be reminded

to live a life full of hope. Favorite quotations can

be inspirational positive reinforcement,

a source of encouragement , and

great reminders.
