Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the Nazi lines
Primo victoria

We've been training for years
Now we're ready to strike
As the great operation begins
We're the first wave on the shore
We're the first ones to fall
Yet soldiers have fallen before

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
In this burning inferno
Know that nothing remains
As our forces advance on the beach

Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the Nazi lines
Primo victoria

On the 6th of June
On the shores of western Europe 1944
D-day upon us

We've been here before
Used to this kind of war
Crossfire grind through the sand
Our orders were easy
It's kill or be killed
Blood on both sides will be spilled

In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
Now that we are at war
With the axis again
This time we know what will come

6th of June 1944
Allies are turning the war
Normandy state of anarchy
Overlord

    Basically if you want the long and short about what this battle is about, it is about the U.S and the British taking Normandy, and it is also kind of a tribute to what the U.S and British soldiers suffered. It has been depicted in many films, books, games etc, and now Sabaton has made a tribute. I applaud Sabaton, and I hope that they continue with their badassary into the future! The date of D-Day was 6 June 1944 if anyone wants to know. Rock on Sabaton!

    A song about d-day, on normandy beach, in france. D-day, or june 6 1944, was the day that the us took normandy beach. If you play call of duty or medal of honor, you would have seen these battles. Also, it is in many wwii movies.
