    Hi there !

    We all (?) like quizzes. Now why not start a quiz about the famous of all days, D-Day ?

    We will start with three questions:

    1. What is/was D-Day ?

    2. What was the date of D-Day ?

    3. What was its code name ?


    Have fun !

    The supreme Allied Commander was indeed General Dwight D. Eisenhower, American citizen and later to become the President of the US.
