Lest We Forget

Today is the 6th of June. The 68th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy by British, American and Canadian armies. It was the largest and most successful invasion by sea in history. Just a few weeks after this invasion, the cracks in the Nazi war machine became apparent. Just a year after, and the war in Europe would be won. Therefore perhaps take some time today, to contemplate the sacrifices made by those men on the shores of France. That saved the Western World from spending the next thousand years under the blood red swastika.
