I have my grandfathers journals from 1944-1945. The journal begins on August 12 1944. On August 15th 1944 he writes: "we've landed on French soil today somewhere in S. France. It's Dday and the infantry have just gone ashore. Our ships are giving them hell as is our constant stream of planes. Rumor is that the Nazis are retreating." I need some more information. I thought Dday was in June not August. Can someone please clarify things for me.
