Here at Valkyrie, we deem it important to post two articles today due to the significance of the occasions. Her Majesty celebrating 70 years of exemplary service to her people and the astounding service and sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy 78 years ago today, known as D-Day.
The Normandy landings were the landing operations and associated airborne operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of France (and later western Europe) and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.
