This colouring page depicts troops arriving on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. 5,000 ships delivered the troops to 5 key beaches over a 50 mile stretch of the coast. When they came ashore they faced enemy fire, mines, barbed wire and other defences.
6th June 2019 will be the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normany - the Allies' great push to win back Europe from Hitler's Germany and the beginning of the end of World War II. There will be celebrations in the UK and France to mark this amazing military operation - the largest seaborne invasion in history, as well as memorial services to remember all those who died on D-Day and after, and during the course of the War.

This D-Day colouring page shows Allied airplanes flying over France. 24,000 troops were dropped by parachute (together with many thousands of dummies) behind enemy lines, to destroy bridges, capture or destory gun batteries and link up with Allied forces coming inwards from the beaches.
