#DDay75 “By June 1944, the tide of #WWII in Europe was turning against Hitler. The Russians were making headway in the east. In the south, British and American forces had landed in Italy, moving north. But the most direct route to Germany, through occupied France, lay untouched.”
“Invading France was no simple task. The Germans were expecting an attack. The north French coast was heavily fortified. Transporting thousands of troops across the English Channel and landing them on beaches in full view of enemy fire risked high casualties.”
“To succeed would require intricate planning, ingenious invention and the mounting of the largest sea and airborne invasion the world had ever seen.” bbc.co.uk/guides/zgvyyrd
