D-Day, or OVERLORD (to give the Allied invasion of Normandy its codename) was the largest amphibious invasion in history. The plan called for an assault upon Hitler's Atlantic Wall to be conducted by 160,000 men, convoyed and landed by an invasion flotilla of over 5,000 ships to land several waves of troops upon five Normandy beaches: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. 'The battle belonged that morning to the thin, wet line of khaki that dragged itself ashore on the channel coast of France', General Omar M. Bradley would later state. On D-Day itself 175,000 men, 3,000 guns, 15,000 tanks and 15,000 other vehicles were landed in Normandy by parachute, glider or across the beaches. Once established and with beachheads linked up, allied forces were faced with fighting in the dense, claustrophobic Normandy bocage, and it took six weeks of brutal additional fighting for the allies to break out of Normandy.
