Video with D-Day in colour footage. Also a US Service March music Medley which contains this songs:
The Star Spangled Banner * The Caisson Song * America The Beautiful * Anchors Aweigh * The Marines Hymn. It's 65 years ago since the Allies landed in France to fight back the Germans. On June the 6th 1944 the Allies started the greatest landing in history to open another front to fight against occupied Europe. This video is made in memoriam of the Allies who's been through hell (especially the first ones who landed) for the liberation of Europe. They gave us the change to rule our own country's again.

I think the music fits well even though you'll see some dead Allied soldiers. (I tried to not let you guys see any more dead soldiers since I thought that in that case the music wouldn't fit anymore.) But they kept on going strong so that's why the music is propitiate anyway. Enjoy and don't forget D-Day!

The Normandy Landings were the first operations of the Allied invasion of Normandy, also known as Operation Neptune and Operation Overlord, during World War II. The landings commenced on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), beginning at 6:30AM British Double Summer Time (H-Hour). In planning, D-Day was the term used for the day of actual landing, which was dependent on final approval. The assault was conducted in two phases: an air assault landing of American, British and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight, and an amphibious landing of Allied infantry and armoured divisions on the coast of France commencing at 6:30AM. The invasion required the transport of soldiers and material from the United Kingdom by troop carrying aircraft and ships, the assault landings, air support, naval interdiction of the English Channel and naval fire-support. There were also subsidiary 'attacks' mounted under the code names Operation Glimmer and Operation Taxable to distract the Kriegsmarine and the German army from the real landing areas. The operation was the largest single-day amphibious invasion of all time, with 160,000 troops landing on June 6, 1944. 195,700 Allied naval and merchant navy personnel in over 5,000 ships were involved. The landings took place along a 50-mile (80 km) stretch of the Normandy coast divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. The Allies had previously invaded mainland Europe September 3, 1943 with the landings in Italy.
