D-Day, the Allied invasion of Europe, began on the night of 5-6 June 1944, and would prove to be the most pivotal battle of the Second World War. At 07.00 hours on 6th, Britain's First Corps and XXX Corps came ashore on Sword and Gold beaches, to withering fire from the entrenched Nazis forces. Within the initial and critical couple of hours some 30,000 soldiers, 300 guns and 700 armoured vehicles were landed, a magnificent achievement and, though the sands were soon choked with the mother of all logjams, exacerbated by a swelling tide, the British were firmly lodged; a bridgehead had been secured, albeit rather flimsy at this juncture. This is the story of the British soldiers' experience of the beach landings on that fateful morning - the spearhead of D-Day invasion - and the deadliest.
