13 Memorable Facts About D-Day

The D-Day invasion was several years in the making. Normandy was chosen as the D-Day landing site because the Allies were hoping to surprise German forces. D-Day action centered around five beaches that were code-named \"Utah,\" \"Omaha,\" \"Gold,\" \"Juno,\" and \"Sword.\" The Normandy invasion was not a one-day affair; it raged on until Allied forces crossed the River Seine in August [PDF]. Altogether, the Allies took about 200,000 casualties over the course of the campaign—including 4413 deaths on D-Day alone.
