Best Answer

June 6th, 1944 is known as D-Day.

The dictionary says the term d-day is used for the day on which any operation or offensive is to be launched. The most famous of these days was during World War II, in which the Allies set out to invade Normandy.

It is actually and abbreviation of the phrase Day of Days, first used in World War I by the American Expeditionary Force in 1918, and this works with all languages that use this code, Jour J in French, E eguna in Basque, Ziua-Z in Romanian, and Dan D in Slovenian.

D-Day stands for DEBARKATION DAY...this is from a World War II veteran the letter D. D-Day was just a name given to the day on which a particular operation commences or is to commence. For an hour they would call it H-Hour, for a day D-Day. There is actually an entry in the military times with all of these classifications. C-day, M-day, F-hour, H-hour, all of these names are there. All just classifications for an unnamed day in which action was to take place.

Even better, important assaults are called D-Day because the D at the beginning means Day, so the word means Day-Day, or Day of Days and the same for H-Hour
