It isn't supposed to stand for anything. It was just code.

+1 It was just a randomly assigned letter. They weren't going to be like, "So how about that June 6th major attack on the Germans, eh?"

"D-Day" often represents a variable, designating the day upon which some significant event will occur or has occurred;


The earliest use of these terms by the U.S. Army that the Center of Military History has been able to find was during World War I. In Field Order Number 9, First Army, American Expeditionary Forces, dated 7 September 1918: "The First Army will attack at H hour on D day with the object of forcing the evacuation of the St. Mihiel Salient."


Just a variable.

I think that was his point, Operation Overlord was the code name for what people call D Day.

as Stated above, its just a Military Variable, i dont think they use it any more though.

ummmmm a codename for a codename? idiot. d-day was actually used for whenever there was a landing pretty much. june 6th is really the most major one.

um,

no

there is one D-Day

another codename for D-Day was Mickey Mouse!

I learned that a couple years ago
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Wrong. Although, it was just a randomly assigned letter, it wouldn't be anything close to any of those things. D-Day was a liberation on the side of the allies. This was the final push that the Allies had in them and had they not succeeded, that probably would have been the end of the war for them. Having it being named after Dark, doom, despair, wouldn't exactly boost the morale for the troops.

as other people have said. It was a code, the day of the landing was called D-day, the actual time of the landing was called H-hour.
#31
As some people have already said, it was just a general codename for the beginning of military operations at that time. It's mainly associated with the beginning of Operation Overlord since it was such a major part of the war. Every other operation would have a had a 'D-Day' it's just widely assumed to only apply to Operation Overlord.
