The British royal yacht, Britannia, carried Queen Elizabeth, President Clinton, and World War II veterans to the Normandy coast to commemorate the 50th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of France.
Did you know?
The Allied invasion of Europe through Normandy created a second front against Nazi Germany. Given the code name OVERLORD, the successful assault took place along a 50-mile stretch of coastline. Five thousand ships carried 150,000 American, British, and Canadian troops from their bases in Great Britain across the English Channel to the Normandy beaches.
