The ships, planes, vehicles and troops needed to launch the D-Day invasion

Operation Overlord, (also known as D-Day), began on June 6, 1944, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region.
