2019Creation - D-Day
One year in the making, over 100 minifigures and hundreds of thousands of pieces. United Bricks is proud to present the Allied invasion of Normandy, often referred to as D-Day, recreated in LEGO form. It was the largest seaborne invasion in history and was intended to open a second front in western Europe to alleviate the pressure on the Soviet Union. It helped establish a foothold for an Allied push into occupied Europe from the west and as a result helped end the War sooner.
Read on to find out how we made it, to learn more about the history behind it, and discover what it takes to mount the greatest seaborne invasion in history...
