On June 6, 1944, at the height of World War II, the allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy to fight the German troops in what became known as D-Day. Operation Neptune, as it was formally designated at the time, started the effort to liberate France from German occupation and was the largest invasion by sea in history.

American, British and Canadian forces played a big part in the planning and execution of the operation, and so for many people it is important to commemorate the victory on June 6 every year. However, D-Day is not recognized as a public holiday.
