British and American troops boldly invaded northern Europe by an amphibious assault on Omaha, Utah, and Juno beaches, Normandy, on June 6, 1944, and turned the course of World War II. Under the direction of the American general Dwight D. Eisenhower, the allies stormed against withering fire of Nazi forces entrenched in pillboxes, and gained a foothold from which they drove back the enemy toward Germany.1 After a suicidal last stand by Nazi forces at the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944, American, British, and free French forces moved from the west onto Berlin in 1945.1 Neurology was there.
