June 1944

62 years ago.

June 1944 and its historical significance for Europeans can not be understated.

Europe was under the jackboot of Nazi Germany and Hitler's gang.

The Allies launched their D-Day landing on 6th June 1944.

On the anniversary of D-Day we should not forget that the Soviets had demolished the German 6th Army at Stalingrad in February 1943 and the slow march towards Berlin began.

The combined Allied forces squeezed the occupying German Armies back to Berlin and Hitler’s bunker and for that we should all be very grateful.
