when was d-day and what was its code name?
- Anonymous5 years agoFavourite answer
In the military, D-Day is the day on which a combat attack or operation is to be initiated. The best known D-Day is during World War II, on June 6, 1944—the day of the Normandy landings—initiating the Western Allied effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi.
Operation Overlord was the code name for the Battle of Normandy, the Allied operation that launched the successful invasion of German-occupied western Europe during World War II.

The actual landing operations were on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 and were code named Operation Neptune. Operation Overlord was the overall plan for the Battle of Normandy. Operation Jupiter was an offensive launched by VIII Corps of the British Second Army on 10 July 1944

The actual amphibious assault and landings were codenamed Operation Jupiter on 6 June 1944. Operation Overlord was the overall Battle for Normandy (although that is commonly used to refer to D-Day too).
