The D-Day Celebrations
Nasir Khan, June 6, 2014
The Normandy landing on June 6, 1944 was a decisive military operation on the Western Front. It dealt a heavy blow to the Nazi occupation of Western Europe and liberated France from the German occupation. Joseph Stalin had for long asked United States and Britain to open up a western front that could have eased up the Nazi military pressure on the Eastern Front. President Roosevelt was willing to do so but Prime Minster Winston Churchill hesitated. However the great D-Day was a monumental military operation in 1944.
We congratulate all those who opposed the Nazi war and brutal Nazi occupation and helped liberate Western Europe and Eastern Europe. Our solute to the brave men and women who took part in this war of liberation both on the Western and Eastern fronts and bow our heads in gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives in the war against the Nazi scourge.
