June 6th 1944 - D-Day - the Allied invasion of Normandy in World War II, also known as 'Operation Overlord' and 'Operation Neptune'  ( the sea-borne part of the operation). The landings commenced on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), beginning at 6:30 British Double Summer Time (H-Hour).

In historical and human consequences, D-Day is probably the most critical turning point in history, signalling the beginning of the end of  fascism and the return of liberty to hundreds of millions of people. It was the largest and most complex logistical and human exercise in history, drawing upon human and military resources on an unprecedented scale.

Spirit of Remembrance is proud to present our new web-site to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, with extensive information on the History and Background of D-Day, D-Day Maps, a great D-Day Image Library and our special 70th anniversary  Normandy D-Day Battlefield Tour.

(*Note: our accommodation for this tour is at nearby Houlgate on the coast itself (1 hour drive away from the Normandy D-Day area) staying in high quality serviced apartments. Most other D-Day Tour operators accommodation is located much further away. )

The French Ministry of Defence has announced that the international ceremony for the 70th anniversary will be held on Sword Beach. Read more: Official website: 70th D-Day Anniversary:
