World War II is a battle that is well known and will never be forgotten! When thinking about unity and teamwork, the D-Day Invasion should come to mind! D-Day “became a bright and shining moment for all that’s noble in modern liberal democracy. Indeed, there has seldom been a date with greater moral clarity in the history of humanity at war than 6 June 1944” (Lyon). Not only was this such an important thing for that time in history, but it is also still remembered and referenced to in today’s society! It is said that if there were a single day to define a moment in history, it would be June 6, 1944, the day of the allied landings at Normandy (Lyon). So many people worked so hard and so diligently to make sure that this invasion was a success and was the beginning of the end of WWII! Take a step back, and imagine what the world would be like today if the D-Day had failed, the allies could’ve reorganized and tried again, but now Hitler would have known more information. Europe and Asia could have fallen even more under the dictatorship of another power. The Iron Curtain would have fallen much closer to the English Channel instead of inside Germany (Lyon). The invasion was something the world has never seen before, and because of that it will never be forgotten. 4

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
