The U.S. Navy would prove critical to the success of the Allied invasion of Western Europe. One thousand and sixty-eight American sailors were killed in the initial assault on Adolf Hitler’s fortress Europe, but until 2008 there was no monument in Normandy recognizing their sacrifice and the role played by the U.S. Navy on D-Day.
