August 1943-The plan to invade France is supported at the Quèbec Conference by Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt William Lyon Mackenzie King Cause-Effect Relationships:
Rommel couldn’t mobilize his limited troops against the Allies and the Allies had a much greater air force The Normandy invasion was a success in terms of securing a foothold from which the allies could launch their counteroffensive against Germany -------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------- Very poor weather conditions caused a delayed invasion -------------------------------------------------------------- When the paratroopers landed on Juno beach they were very scattered, confusing the enemy and not allowing them to have an idea of the size of the oncoming invasion Significance/Impact/Consequences -------------------------------------- Final invasion of Germany brought the war to a close in the Allies' favour.
The success of the operation enabled the building of an artificial harbour for troops. The building of the harbour allowed many more allied troops into France to liberate them from Germany.
A strong foothold in central Europe, gained a better fighting advantage against German troops.
A consequence of the great success of the invasion would be the outcome: The victory of the Allies. 1. Would the Allies have been as successful in the war had they not done the Normandy landing?
ex 1: If they conserved their resources?
ex 2: Or used a different tactic? 2. They said necessity is the mother of invention. This is very evident in all the technology invented during Word War 2. But, do the positives outweigh the negatives when it comes to war? Or is it one big loss? Explain.
