The Germans wanted more land and they wanted to control more of

western Europe, so they took over Normandy, France and then the

allied forces of Australia, Canada, Belgium, France,

Czechoslovakia, Greece, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Norway,

Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States were unhappy so

they invaded the beaches of Normandy.

The Battle of Normandy and the D-Day invasions were part of the

overall strategy of liberating Europe from Nazi rule. Europe was

being invaded from the east by the Soviet Army, and from the south

by Allied forces in Italy, but a more broad front was needed for

the main push on Germany, and Normandy was chosen.
