Remembering D-Day

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host On June 6, 1944 over a hundred and fifty thousand troops stormed the beaches of Normandy in an effort to regain control of Europe over the German Nazi forces.  Young, and willing to fight for liberty on a foreign shore, the Americans lost thousands on that first day.  

D-Day marked a decisive turning point in World War II.  Less than a year later, on May 7, 1945, Nazi Germany signed an unconditional surrender.

All five beaches on the Normandy Coast were secured by Allied forces by June 11.

Originally planned for May, bad weather pushed the invasion to June. The invasion, officially called “Operation Overlord,” combined the forces of 156,115 U.S., British and Canadian troops, 6,939 ships and landing vessels, and 2,395 aircraft and 867 gliders that delivered airborne troops.  The paratroopers struck first, carrying out an operation that had been in planning for months. Initially, a plan called “Operation Sledgehammer” targeted northwest France’s ports as early as 1943, but the allied leadership decided to invade an easier target, Northern Africa, first.  They then worked on attacking Europe’s “soft underbelly” through Italy.  Eventually, it was realized that if the war was to be won, an invasion of France would also be necessary.
