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 August 25 to September 17 1944) The Allies liberated Paris, liberated 7 villages, the Allies crossed the Siegfried Line into Germany, and Operation Market Garden began (largest airborne invasion in history)in Holland (the third installment in the Brothers In Arms saga will be based on the Airborne drops into Holland, beginning with the jump, to the bitter defeat of the Allied Paratroopers.). This failed operation lights the fuse that will later explode into the Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes.
If you want to get a clearer view on D-Day I suggest watching Saving Private Ryan, or picking up a book, or documentary.
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.

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 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.
