In the early hours on June 6, 1944, the largest airborne and amphibious assault the world has ever seen was set into operation. Over 200,000 allied troops descended upon the northern coast of France and in the face of fierce German resistance pushed inland, as wave upon wave of troops invaded the mine-littered beaches.

Today, 65 years on from D-Day, Osprey Publishing remembers those who served and died in one of the most significant and dramatic events in world history.
