Transcript of D-Day
When did D-Day happen?
D-Day was first planned to be on June 5, 1944,a date chosen strategically by the ally spies who scouted before the attack, but due to weather conditions it was pushed back 24 hours to the 6th. The entire invasion lasted until August. The operation was codenamed "Overlord".

Where did D-Day take place?
D-Day took place on the beaches of Normandy,France. This area was chosen because it was less heavily guarded.
The beaches the Allies invaded were codenamed Gold, Juno, Sword, Omaha, Utah, and Pointe Du Hoc.
The allies made the Nazis think that they were going to invade a different spot so that the nazis wouldn't have time to send troops to Normandy because they were already in the fake area.
Why did D-Day happen?
Many things led to the liberation on D-Day
The most important(and most obvious) reason was to take France back from Nazi control.
Another was to try to end WW2 and knock Hitler out of power.
Vehicles such as tanks, boats and planes were used during the war along with guns. The LCVP (boat), the Douglas C-47 Dakota (plane) and the M4 Sherman (tank) were used by the Americans. The 2 most used weapons were the M911 pistol and the M1 Garand.
This project helped me to realize
how devastating WW2 was, and to
see how different technology can
change a war. It was upsetting to
hear about all the casualties, and I
was surprised to find out about all the deception tactics we used to liberate Normandy.
