Operation Overlord was D-Day, the Allied invasion of Nazi held

Europe. It was possibly the most significant event of WW2 in Europe

and the biggest ever combined forces operation ever, the largest

landing on enemy held beaches ever, the largest movement of troops

in a single day ever and involved the largest parachute invasion

ever. It was significant in many ways.
