A stunning set of bookends on the Second World War and the landing in France.

The Normandy landings, also known as Operation Overlord, stand as a pivotal moment in World War II. Launched on June 6, 1944, this massive assault by Allied forces on the Normandy coast aimed to open a new front in Western Europe, ultimately to overthrow the Nazi regime. Meticulously planned, Operation Overlord mobilized American, British, Canadian, and other allied troops, totaling nearly 156,000 men landed on that day. Normandy's beaches, previously targeted by intensive aerial and naval bombardments, became the scene of fierce fighting. The sectors of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword were the main points of entry. Despite fierce resistance from German defenders, the Allies managed to secure a crucial beachhead, paving the way for the liberation of occupied Europe. This colossal landing was not only a military feat but also a symbol of the determination and unity of the Allied nations against Nazi oppression. Operation Overlord thus marks an essential chapter in modern history, testifying to the sacrifice and courage of those who participated in this titanic endeavor for freedom.
