“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.” ― George Orwell
There were a lot of D-Days, along with A-, Z-, H-, and any other Days you can mention (the non-D days were in the Pacific, particularly under MacArthur who always had several operations in different island chains going at once). At Salerno, the Panzers almost rolled right onto the beaches before they were stopped. At Gela, they were stopped by Darby's Rangers and the USS Savannah, later sopld to Argentina and sunk in the Falklands War.So there were closer calls, but Normandy was the biggest.
