        The War in France | Ken Burns: The War

        View images taken from the Allied invasion of Normandy, France during World War II. On June 6, 1944, a million and a half Allied troops stormed the French coastline in the greatest invasion in history. More than 2,500 Americans would lose their lives as the Allies ripped through Hitler’s Atlantic Wall, a German fortification along the Atlantic coastline, and began its campaign to liberate the country. The Allies would succeed in liberating Paris two months later, on August 25, 1944.
