Allied Forces began the major attack to remove Germans from Europe, 60 years ago a day like today, June 6th 1944. D-Day are remembered all over Europe and North America every year and veterans remeber their comrades who died in such a day. Allied forces, which was comprised of Americans, British and Canadaians, mainly, invaded France, the attack that finally led to defeat of Nazis.
The day was remebered in major cities of Canada and also in France where a cemetery takes care of bodies of 359 Canadian soldiers who lost their livse in those days.
Steven Spielberg illustrated the D-Day invasion in his movie Saving Private Ryan. The movie won different Oscars including best cinematography by Polish cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. The first 20 min. of the movie shows the massacre of young American soldiers. The slaughter which was planned by Americans, partially. They paid for that because they knew there's a benefit waiting for them: governing Europe through Marshall Plan and stoppage of Soviets as part of their anti-communism plans.
