Allied Advance

June 6 - August 26, 1944

On the morning of June 6, American forces landed on the western beaches of Utah and Omaha, while British and Canadian forces came ashore at Gold, Juno, and Sword.

Reinforcements continued to arrive and support the advancing Allied soldiers for weeks following D-Day, supporting the mission to capture of the Cotentin Peninsula by the end of the month.
