In the early hours of June 6, 1944 the biggest amphibious assault ever was underway.  The target of the invasion was Normandy, France.  The invasion was codenamed Operation Overlord.  The attack on Normandy was the first coordinated attacks between the Allies.  The main targets for the Normandy Invasion were Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Juno Beach, Sword Beach, and Gold Beach.  When the day was finally over the Allies had a strong hold on the once German occupied Normandy.
