D-Day was the Allied invasion of Normandy, France. It gave the Allies a foothold in western France and would cause the Germans to retreat. The significant factor was that large numbers of Allied forces could safely land on parts of France that the Allies held. It was also a significant morale boost for the Allies. Germany now found itself fighting on three fronts. Fighting Allied troops in Italy, Russia and France.
