...historys biggest amphibious invasion.
Don’t mess with the myths! I’ve always found it bizarre that the Normandy invasion was portrayed/described as “gaining a foothold in Europe” when Americans had been in Europe for a year (in Italy - the “soft underbelly”). Normandy was orchestrated because the German defense in Italy was causing huge casualties.
Sadly, the Americans who landed on Normandy and Okinawa wouldn’t even recognize this country today. If it is any comfort to them, most people in this country today don’t even know what Normandy and Okinawa mean...
