Some hours later left a fleet of 3000 landing vessels, 2500 other ships and 500 Navy ships the English ports.
The same night 822 planes with parachutists and gliders take off from English airfields. They formed the start of an air fleet of no less than 13000 planes.
On 6 June, at 6.30 in the morning American, British and Canadian troops landed on the French coast at Normandy.
The day of landing will remain forever as D-Day.
