D-Day

D-Day at the Imperial War Museum
The Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944 - Operation Overlord - came after five years of war with Germany. It was the biggest and most complex combined operation in history, involving co-operation between the naval, air and ground forces on an unprecedented scale and marked the beginning of the end of the Second World War. 2004 is the 60th anniversary of this landmark event and at the five branches of the Imperial War Museum you can discover the fascinating stories of the people involved, from generals and political leaders to soldiers and civilians, through a series of special exhibitions and events.
