It's the day known as D-Day.
June 6, 1944 was the day that more than 160,000 U.S. and other allied troops landed on the shores of France to push German forces out of the European countries it had occupied and to defeat Nazi Germany in the second world war. Approximately 4,500 Allied soldiers lost their lives in the invasion.
So what does the "D" in D-Day stand for? Nobody is sure. But, being that this is the military we're talking about, one of the more probable explanations is that it stands for Day.
