The English Channel divides Britain and France and has provided protection for both countries from each other for millennia. In 1066, it provided William the Conqueror with the means to invade England. Early on the morning of June 6, 1944, the waters were black with the hulls of ships steaming from England to Normandy. They brought a storm of Allied troops which wrested control of the Continent away from oppressors and freed the peoples of Europe.
