D-Day was the largest amphibious invasion in world history and was executed by land, sea, and air with over 160,000 troops landing on the Normandy beaches on 6 June 1944. Nearly 200,000 naval personnel in over 5,000 ships were also involved. The fighting in Normandy continued for another two and a half months before the German forces were forced to retreat.
