During World War II, the Allied invasion of Europe in 1944 struck primarily and directly on the Normandy coastline of France. Located in the central portion of the northern coast-border of France, Normandy was chosen by Allied planners as the best possible 'gateway' through which Allied forces could pass so as to establish the long-awaited Second Front against Nazi-occupied Europe.
