    Here is an easy one to even out the tough # VI.

    Although D-Day is commonly recognized as 6 June 1944, D-Day was a common designator of beach assaults in WW II.

    What was the last D-Day of WW II and on what date did it take place ?

    April 1st, 1945 Okinawa is my guess.

      Interesting question. If I had to guess I'd say it happened some where in the Dutch East Indies.

          Balut Island, Philippines. 20 July 1945.

          "landing of American units...who wipe out small Japanese garrison"

          Got it from 2194 Days of War...an interesting day-by-day book of WW2. It may not be the correct answer, but while researching this I found an interesting tidbit on the end of the war. It says that 1000 Japanese soldiers actually attacked the Imperial palace to prevent the Emporer from broadcasting his surrender. I had no idea!

            That's a good one, but I'm looking for a major amphibious operation. Since it's close I'll provide a clue.

            The last D-Day in WW II was a divisional sized operation carried out by an Allied nation. Not the USA.

                Wrong Ally. Wrong landing. Wrong date.

                Remember, the landing and the date it took place are required.

                  What about the British/Indian amphibious/airborne assault on Rangoon, 1st and 2nd May 1945?

                            Close.

                            On July 1st, 1945, the 7th Australian Division landed at Balikpapan, Borneo in what became recognized as the last large scale amphibious landing of WW II.
                            The landing at Balikpapan is also recognized as the largest all Australian amphibious operation of the War.
