As of Monday, we are now just two years from the 80th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944. D-Day marked the turning point of World War II with hundreds of thousands of soldiers and naval personnel who were either directly involved in or supported the storming of beaches along France’s Normandy coast. They faced a smaller, but well-entrenched force of more than 50,000 German soldiers with 170 coastal artillery guns that, in turn, included guns from 100mm to 210mm in size as well as 320mm rocket launchers.
