Today marks 75 years since the landings on the beaches of Normandy in the military action forever known as D-Day. Twelve Allied nations were involved in the action including Australia, Canada, Belgium, France, Czechoslovakia, Greece, New Zealand, Holland, Norway, Poland, Great Britain and the United States. It's also worth mentioning that Russia were bravely fighting on the eastern front both in defence and in order to distract the Axis powers as much as they could millitary wise on the day of the landings. Whilst it's strange to think it, this millitary action marks a point where the leading nations of the world were united under one aim, probably more than they have ever been in recent history. We are so used to the D-Day Story now that we assume victory was inevitable but it really wasn't. This was a last throw of the dice from the allied powers to get a footing in fortress Europa and could quite easily of failed. If it had then the allies really had little left to fight the war with and our history would have been a very different one. I'm not one for celebrating war but in this case I think we all need to take time out to remember the brave individuals who fought this military action and help defeat the biggest threat the world has ever seen to it's freedoms. Our world is very much a mess today but, make no mistake, a society where the politics of the Nazi party were allowed to exist would have been much much worse. We all owe these individuals a debt. So not the best thing I've ever written but wanted to put something out there. Would love to hear any stories/family memories or even just facts and thoughts you all might have of the D-Day landings. Remember them all.
