June 6, 2024 is D-Day’s 80th anniversary; but what makes D-Day so important? Why does it deserve proper acknowledgement?

In the military, D-Day is the day on which an assault is initiated. While this D-Day (also known as Operation Neptune) was not the only “D-Day” of WWII, nor is the term specific to that conflict, it was the most impactful. On June 6, 1944, the Allies combined their air, sea, and land forces in an invasion of Nazi-occupied Normandy, France. The war didn’t end upon this invasion, but the Allies would not have won without it—the success of the invasion opened Europe to the Allies, resulting in Germany’s surrender less than a year later.

Besides the fact that the invasion was a catalyst to the eventual success of the Allies over Germany, D-Day also deserves recognition for being the largest seaborne invasion in history and for being perhaps the most intricately planned military operation in history as well. In a way, it’s a story of underdog success; the stakes were so high and the impact was so Herculean that it almost seems unreal.
