D-DAY THE ALLIED LANDINGS IN FRANCE

The five D-Day landing beaches were named, west to east, as Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. The first two were the American beaches for the 1st (US) Army and the other three for the British and Canadian 2nd (British) Army.

The western beaches were allocated to the Americans so that their supply routes from home would not cross the routes to the other beaches.
