    The Battle of Normandy, D-Day, code named Operation Overlord, commenced with the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. Over 425,000 Allied and German troops were killed, wounded or went missing during the Battle of Normandy.
