Today marks the 76th anniversary of Operation Neptune, the allied invasion of
Normandy known as D-Day, the largest seaborne invasion in history. This kicked
off Operation Overlord, the Battle of Normandy, which reestablished the western
front and helped turn the tide during World War II. It's also the date of
another pivotal moment of World War II, as it's also part of the 78th
anniversary the Battle of Midway. Called one of the most significant naval
battles in history, this resulted in the sinking of two-thirds of Japan's
aircraft carriers, devastating their fleet.
