As a veteran owned and operated business, we take pride on our military history. Truly because with out the occurrence of the events in the past we would not find ourselves here today. Therefore, we honor and thank the service members that went before us during WWII. To paint the picture better, if you ever seen the movie “Saving Private Ryan”, these are the events we are talking about.
The important things to take home is that D-day was a turning point during the war at the cost of many American, British, and Canadian lives. On June 6, 1944 troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of beach in Normandy, a coast of France. The landing is also known as the Battle of Normandy, Code-named Operation Overlord which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control.
According to History Channel (2017), “The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. Prior to D-Day, the Allies conducted a large-scale deception campaign designed to mislead the Germans about the intended invasion target. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.”
By the end of August, Allied forces reached Seine River, and made German forces retreat from the northwestern part of France, causing Paris to be liberated. After the conclusion of the battle, troops prepared to enter Germany and met up with Soviet troops. The events were remarkable and turned over the War. This is why Pacific Breeze Landscape takes pride on today’s history. Hoorah!
