(Example) D-Day June 6, 1944 Battle of Normandy Beginning of the Western Allied effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation during World War II
Before the Invasion (Example of what not to do) During the first six months of 1944, the United States and Great Britain gathered and trained land, naval, and air forces in England. At the same time, the Soviet Union tied down a great portion of the enemy forces. Allied airplanes photographed enemy defenses, dropped supplies to the resistance, bombed railways, and attacked Germany’s industries.

Project Overlord Operation Overlord was a huge assault on Normandy beaches in France. It was the largest focused military operation of all time. Developments such as nuclear weapons and missiles make it unlikely that such a concentration of ships and assault troops will ever be assembled again. Operation Overlord nearly failed due to weather, operational errors, and stiff resistance by well prepared German forces. In the end, Overlord succeeded, the Allies surged into France, and the fate of Hitler's Third Reich was sealed.

Purpose of D-Day After Germany invaded most of Europe, the Allies determined that Germany had to be defeated. Germany had killed millions and was willing to spread it's fear of foreigners to even more of the world and considered England to be the next target. Had Germany just left England alone for a while, Hitler would have probably succeeded in his quest for power. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/columnists/columnists.html?in_page_id=1 772&in_article_id=466554&in_author_id=464
