Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

June 6th

The assault was conducted in two phases: an air assault landing of American, British and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight…


Followed by an amphibious landing of Allied infantry commencing at 6:30 AM…



On five beaches – Utah, Omaha (American), Gold (British), Juno (Canadian),  and Sword (British). Free French, Polish, and Commonwealth troops also landed. The place was Normandy.

The operation was the largest amphibious invasion of all time, with over 160,000 troops landing on 6 June 1944. Over 5,000 ships were involved.

It is my humble opinion that the best book to read if you want to learn about D-Day, and the liberation of France, is The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan. (The movie isn’t bad either.)
