No. The largest invasion in the history of warfare was Operation Barbarossa - the German invasion of the USSR, on 22 June 1941. It involved some 3.8 million German soldiers and 2.9 million Soviet soldiers, along a front line of over 1800 miles. By sheer scale, the Normandy invasion of 6 June 1944 doesn't even come close, although it was the most complex amphibious invasion in history.
