On the morning of june 6 the Allied soldiers stormed onto the beaches along the coast of Normandy in what is the largest seaborne invasion in history. In terms of casualties it was a disaster for the Allies, they lost 10 times the amount the Germans did. But they flood in reinforcements to hold the beach. The Germans thought the whole thing was a diversion, leaving only 150,000 men there, this was their downfall. They are overrun and the liberation of France begins. It is another turning point.
