D-Day 80 years on
On D-Day, 6 June 1944, Allied forces launched a combined naval, air and land assault on Nazi-occupied France.
Codenamed Operation 'Overlord', the Allied landings on the Normandy beaches, marked the start of a long and costly campaign to liberate north-west Europe from German occupation.
