FAIRFAX, Va - -(Ammoland.com)- Today marks the 69th anniversary of “Operation Overlord” — the D-Day invasion where more than 160,000 allied troops landed on a 50-mile stretch of French Coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France in 1944.
We would like to honor the allied forces that participated in the invasion by sharing a film created by the U.S. Army in 1969.
In this film, the drama and battle action of the landing at Normandy is portrayed along with the fierce combat that took place to overcome “Fortress Europe” (compliments of the National Archives).
