  1. World Leaders Gather For D-Day Anniversary

    Seventy years after over 156,000 British, U.S. and Canadian troops landed in Normandy on June 6, 1944, world leaders have assembled there today to remember D-Day. The day’s commemorations include a re-enactment of the beach landings, as well as speeches from Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande. About 4,500 Allied troops died on the first day of the world’s largest seaborne invasion, which would help end the Nazi occupation of Western Europe and change the course of World War II.
