Sixty-nine Years Ago Today: D-Day

By Mike Watson
Adair County Historian

The largest invasion in history began sixty-nine years ago today. Long planned and stalled by bad weather, Operation Overlord, the invasion of German-occupied France at Normandy by the Allied Forces under direction of General Dwight Eisenhower, was the opening of a second front of fighting in Europe.

The Germans believed an invasion would come at Calais, the closest point between England and France, and they believed could not come at this time due to weather conditions.
