Operation Neptune was the initial assault phase of the Allied invasion of France on 6 June 1944 (Operation Overlord was the codename for the invasion of the entire Normandy region). The Americans stormed the beaches of Omaha and Utah, the British at Sword and Gold beaches, and the Canadians came ashore at Juno beach. Allied paratroopers had dropped behind German lines the prevent reinforcements from coming to the front as the seaborne landing troops came ashore. A successful beachhead was established which allowed for the Allies to breakout into Northwestern France in their march to Germany.
This map was used by the First United States Army Group (FUSAG). Even though this command existed only on paper with Patton as its commander, this map was used by Allied planners to track the progress of the invasion. The movements shown were current as of midnight of 6 June going into 7 June.
