During World War II (1939-1945), the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944, resulted in the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. With the code name, Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning. By late August 1944, all of northern France had been liberated, and by the following spring, the Allies had defeated the Germans. The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe.

Let me take a moment to share with you what I learned about “Favour”.
