Battle of Normandy
D-Day June 6, 1944

By:Christian Denker The Objecctive
Capture the German controlled coastline of Normandy, France.
Allied forces will storm the coastline via watercraft while paratroopers will drop in behind German lines. Area of Landings

The beach invasion will spread out over a fifty mile radius. There is going to be five beaches to attack Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, Sword. Why are we performing this attack?
Normandy is Hitler's main defense on his western front.
If the we can break through from the west, it will be a crippling loss to Hitler's "Europian Fortress".

We will need to land all of our vehicles and supplies onto the beach without sinking. With the use of flotation devices, we can float tanks and cars onto the beach. Once you have unloaded onto the beach, you will have to run for cover from the mounted MG fire from the Germans.They are camped out in their bunkers and it will be tough to get them. We are scrambling every sea worthy water craft, including tug boats, ferries and all available military ships. Fight hard and with a victory, we can finally have a grip on the Europian mainland. The After Math Casualties for the Battle of Normandy, Allied Powers and German forces, are estimated at over 425,000 men. Of these numbers, roughly 209,000 Allied soldiers were either injured or killed. Germans lost over 200,000 troops as well. Also to be included are the 15,000 to 20,000 French civilians that lost their lives to the Allied bombings.
The Battle of Normandy will go down in history as the largest amphibious invasion to date.By the end of 11 June (D-Day + 5), 326,547 troops, 54,186 vehicles and 104,428 tons of supplies had been landed on the beaches. Pictures Works Cited
