(Generaal Eisenhower besluit, ondanks het aanhoudende slechte weer, om D-Day op 6 juni 1944 te laten plaatsvinden. ‘s Nachts worden Britse en Amerikaanse soldaten per parachute achter de Normandische stranden gedropt om daar de routes vanaf de stranden naar het binnenland veilig te stellen. Na een grootschalig bombardement (door 13000 vliegtuigen) beginnen om 6:30 uur de feitelijke landingen op de stranden. Meer dan 5000 schepen worden hierbij ingezet plus het gebruik van 4000 landingsvaartuigen. Deze landing is het begin van de bevrijding van West-Europa. In Oost-Europa zijn de Duitsers al aan het verliezen van de Sovjetunie. De term D-day staat voor decision day, want op deze dag wordt een beslissende slag geleverd voor het verdere verloop van de Tweede Wereldoorlog.)
