an operation which wasent nessesary, if the allies hadent invaded there the germans still would have been defeated, d-day was not to save france from the germans, but to save france from the russians. bye june 1944, the germans had already lost at kursk nearly year before d-day, which was the turning point in the war i nthe east, by late 1945 if the allies hadent invaded, france would have msot likly been part of the soviet union.
the allies were thinking about more than the germans...
D-Day, (despite all the celebration behind the specific one on June 6, 1944) is actually the generic Army term for any amphibious landing. There were countless D-Day's throughout Europe and Asia during WW2, but nowadays when someone says D-Day it's 99% sure they are talking about the Allied attack on Normandy, France in 1944.
I rock. My name is Tom.
The day The Allies invaded France, and told Hitler that his days were numbered. Omaha Beach is the target for many movies and video games etc. because the casualty rate was higher than the other 5 beaches combined.
Omaha Beach: 2400 dead/wounded
Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah, and Pointe du Hoc: 1675 dead/wounded
The landings of D-Day took months of careful planning. The invasion began with the Paratroopers of Americas 101st, and 82nd, along with the British glider soldiers, they secured many towns and villages before daybreak, and also caused alot of chaos for the German ranks before the initial landings. Free French (La' Resistance) sabotaged railway systems used by Germans for supply lines, and sheltered American and British soldiers who were lost, or hiding from German soldiers.
American: Omaha, Utah, and Pointe Du Hoc
British: Sword,and Gold
Axis: Erwin Rommel (Germany)
Allies: General Dwight D. Eisenhower (U.S.), Bernard Montgomery (British, Canadians)
Allies: 4075 Dead/Wounded/Missing
Axis: Unknown (most likely in the high thousands)
Area taken: All 6 beaches plus surounding towns and villages. I.E. Vierville Sur Mer
Date set for invasion: Originally set for June 5th, but because of the random weather of the English channel the landing force could not land until weather was clearer. Date was then set to June 6th, 1944.
Misc. Fact: Within a span of a few weeks (from ...
1. 6th June 1944 - When the troops invaded France in the turning point of WWII
2. When all the Charver
scum of Great Britain stagger down to the the job centre to get their 'wages'. D-day is when you can find all the unemployable scum in parks with cheap cider, or bags of heroin/crack trying to have sex with 13 year old girls.
1. There is an educational film on about D-day tonight
2 Chav: Fuckin' d-day comes along get yourself some thatcher's white magic - it's the fuckin' biz an i'm off to be buzzin off my tits in a bit innit
To everyone with negative things to say about d-day: how about you show some fucking respect for the people who fought and died there. They are the reason you have many of the freedoms you enjoy, so shut the fuck up and show some appreciation.
Liberal assclowns have no reverence for those who have fought and died to maintain the blanket of freedom under which they sleep at night.
1. June 6, 1994
2. Designated day; unnamed day on which operations commence or are scheduled to commence.
The Allies stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944
Canadian, British, and American armies landed on Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah, and Omaha beaches in northern France in attempt to breach the German defences protecting their western flank. Unfortunately for the mother fucking Nazi's, our bad ass Westerners knocked them the fuck out. About 110 000 soldiers landed on June 6th 1994 and about 10 000 became casualties. The Americans had particular difficulty securing Omaha beach where German defences mowed down their soldiers with supressive machine gun, mortar and airial fire.
Luckily for us, we fucking rock and we rocked those fudge packing Nazi's all the way back to Berlin and squeezed them between the left ass cheek of the Canadians, British, and Americans and right ass cheek of the Russians.
FUCK YOU ADOLF HITLER!
Nazi: Hey look, it's the Canadians
Nazi 2: Hey look it's the British
Nazi 3: Hey look it's the Americans
Nazi 4: Hey look we're gonna fucking die!
Adolf Hitler: Give me Canadian men and American equipment and I'll win the war.
I purpose for the unification of America and Canada to become the "United Sates of North America"....we'll take over the world.
Dandelion Day, an annual tradition at the University of Rochester started in 1951 and held in April on the last Saturday before Reading Period, in which students rise earlier than they would for their classes to drink and be merry. Usually accompanied by bands, carnival games and/or rides in the Wilson Quad. Actually stands for Drunk Day.
