Yours, Anne M. Frank TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 1944 My dearest Kitty, "This is D-Day," the BBC announced at twelve.
We heard over the BBC that Churchill wanted to land along with the troops on D-Day, but Eisenhower and the other generals managed to talk him out of it.
The whole Cotentin Peninsula has been captured just three weeks after the invasion! What a feat! In the three weeks since D-Day there hasn’t been a day without rain and storms, neither here nor in France, but this bad luck hasn’t kept the British and the Americans from displaying their might.
There are no more uses of "D-Day" in the book.

D-Day was planned for June 5th, but was changed to the 6th due to bad weather.
That’s more men than died on the beaches of Normandy on D-day in World War Two, twenty-six years later."
