What event turned thetide In Europe during the World War 2?
I would probably say the Normandy landings on D-Day June 6th 1944, where more than 5000 Ships and 13000 aircraft with 175.000 troops. After a planned feint attack (that had been planned for many months) moved panza tank devisions north, away from Normandy, and the weather cleared out, mere hours before the invasion, it was a combination of luck, strength and courage that turned the tide and got the Allied forces a strong foothold in mainland Europe, from which to push back and eventually defeat the Nazi forces.

How did the war in europe end in World War 2?
After the failed invasion of Russia by the Nazis and the defeat of Mussolini in Italy the tide had turned against Germany. With Germany fighting its' way in retreat from Russia the Allied landing at Normandy France(D-day) created a multi-front dilemma for the Nazis. As Eisenhower and the Allied Forces fought their way through France(the Western Front) Russia was converging on Germany(the Eastern Front). It was only a matter of time,and on May 8, 1945, Victory in Europe was achieved.

Importance of invasion in Normady France?
Absolutely vital the USSR had turned the tide at Stalingrad and The Red Armies had begun their move toward Germany. The Italians had turned over to the Allies and Allied troops were moving north through Italy. A Beachhead had to be established in Normandy for an allied invasion. Germany was trapped in an ever tightening noose.
