Operation Overlord was the code name for the Allied invasion of France on June 1944. General Dwight D. Eisenhower headed the operation.
Torch marked the introduction of American forces into the European theater against the Germans (the landing was actually in North Africa). American, British & French forces then began a push to capture Tunisia and link up with the British 8th Army in the East. While this was not the "Second Front" that the Russians wanted (the second front occurred during Operation Overlord), it did mark the beginning of the US land effort against Germany and Italy.
