Between 1939 and 1941, the forces of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany blazed a path of destruction, oppression and murder across the map of Europe and beyond and it seemed his ambition could never be satisfied. The world was his goal. Death was his tool. Only a badly beaten and barely holding-on Britain managed to hold back the tide long enough to guarantee that all of Europe wouldn’t be draped in a flag bearing the Swastika. And yet within three years Britain, Canada and the United States along with survivors from the fallen nations would amalgamate into a single force and in one swift move, drive a dagger into the side of Hitler’s dreams of total, European and ultimately global supremacy. That dagger was driven in on the beaches of Normandy in June 1944 and it would be twisted into a wound that would never close. This is the story of Operation Overlord.

Operation Overlord or D-Day | Past to Future This video presents Operation Overlord or best known today as D-Day - the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II. By June 1940, France had fallen to the Nazis and Adolf Hitler was gloating over it as “the most famous victory in history.” With more than 300,000 British troops evacuating from the beaches of Dunkirk, in a famous speech, the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill vowed to liberate France from Nazi Germany. A year later, the German invasion against Russia made the Soviets become one of the Britain allies. Six month after that, American entered the war in an attempt to win it. Two preliminary proposals were drawn up: Operation Sledgehammer and Operation Roundup. The latter was adopted but delayed due to the Allied invasion of French North Africa in November 1942, the invasion of Sicily in the following year, and Italy in two months after that. In December 1943, at the Tehran Conference in Iran, Roosevelt and Stalin combined against Churchill to insist on launching the invasion across the English channel within the next year. In the months leading up to the invasion, the Allies conducted Operation Bodyguard – the overall strategy designed to mislead the Germans about the date and location of the landings. Three months later, Allied forces launched Exercise Tiger, a rehearsal for the D-Day invasion. Between April 1 and June 5, over 11,000 aircraft were deployed, 200,000 sorties were launched and 195,000 tons of bombs were dropped on French rail centres and road networks, etc., succeeding in isolating the invasion area from the rest of France. By early June, the number of troops present in Britain reached more than 2 million Americans, along with 250,000 Canadians in preparation for the Normandy invasion. Millions of tons of supplies were shipped from America to the staging area, including 450,000 tons of ammunition. In November 1943, aware of a threat of an invasion along France’s northern coast, Adolf Hitler appointed Erwin Rommel to spearhead defense operations in the region and finish the Atlantic Wall, a 2,400-mile fortification of bunkers, landmines and beach and water obstacles. Believing that the Allies would invade Pas de Calais (the narrowest point between Britain and France), the German heavily defended the place. In the Normandy area, the best fortifications were concentrated at the port facilities at Cherbourg and St Malo. By June 5, 1944, Rommel had been able to have some four million more mines laid on the beaches. By dawn of June 6, U.S., British, and Canadian forces simultaneously landed on five separate beachheads of Normandy, France. The British Army landed in the east on the code-named beaches Sword and Gold. The Canadians invaded Juno beach. The American Army captured Omaha and Utah beach. In those fateful 24 hours of June 6, approximately 156,000 Allied troops had successfully stormed Normandy beaches, and Allied casualties were at least 10,000 with more than 4,000 confirmed dead. Meanwhile, German casualties numbered at least 4,000 but some other documents claimed statistics of more than 9,000. Although all of the Allies’ objectives have not been completed on the first day of D-Day, the operation gained a foothold that the Allies gradually expanded over the ensuing months. On June 12, the key town of Carentan was captured by US troops, allowing five Allied beachheads to be connected for the first time. A week after D-Day, the Allies had landed 327,000 troops, 54,000 vehicles and 103,000 tons of supplies in Normandy. On June 26, the Allies captured the French port of Cherbourg. A month later, the city of Caen was captured. On August 15, the Allies launched Operation Dragoon, the code name for the landing operation of the Allied invasion of Provence and liberated most of Southern France in just four weeks. 10 days later, the French capital of Paris was liberated. And just 5 days after that, the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division crossed the Seine as the Germans continued to fall back, marking the close of Operation Overlord. On April 30 of the following year, Adolf Hitler committed suicide. On May 7, less than a year after D-Day, Germany signed its unconditional surrender. The day after that, the Allies accepted Germany’s surrender, marking the official end of World War II. This day was also announced VE Day - Victory in Europe to celebrate the end of the Second World War. What do you think about the D-Day and its contribution to Allied victory in WWII?

The Normandy Landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, supported Operation Overlord and paved the way for the liberation of Europe. The Allies selected Normandy as the landing site for the invasion because it provided the best access to France’s interior. Initially planned for May 1944, the invasion was delayed until June due to a lack of landing craft. Weather conditions almost caused another delay, but Commander of the Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force General Dwight Eisenhower made the decision to proceed as planned.
The Light of Dawn tells the story of Operation Overlord. It traces one of the largest military operations man has ever conceived since the summer of 1941 - when Churchill and Roosevelt first broached the issue - to June 6, 1944. He deciphers the strategy of 'Hitler to make it fail. The film recounts this crucial turning point in World War II where questions of geopolitics (the difficult alliance between London, Moscow and Washington), the various military strategies and technological prowess as well as the fate of the young soldiers who attacked the wall of the Atlantic will pay a heavy price. The landing will be told here in the style of a play with its intrigues, its dramas, the art of bluffing and the fate of the world being played out. Entirely written with archival footage remastered and colorized, this 90-minute film written and directed by Jean-Christophe Rosé was produced for France Télévisions as part of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in June 2014.

On June 6, 1944, the Allies launched the biggest amphibious landing operation the world has ever seen - Operation Neptune. In all five sectors allied troops, despite the element of surprise, sustained great casualties. However, one of them was more devastating than others. At Omaha beach, US soldiers had the greatest difficulties in achieving their objective. The price they paid on this beach, rightfully earned it the nickname …. ‘Bloody Omaha’.

Support Our Channel : 🤍 Created by the U.S. Navy's Industrial Incentive Division and the Office of Strategic Service (OSS) during WWII, this "Nazi version" of the Normandy invasion is a translated, authentic German newsreel. The strategy at work here is taken from Frank Capra, who used authentic enemy newsreels and motion picture films in his "Why We Fight" series to provide insight into the Axis. This film, like "Why We Fight", was intended to make its intended audience — American war workers to whom these types of incentive films were shown —outraged, helping them focus on the vital task of production. The film shows the considerable German coastal defenses at Normandy, and the organized, efficient, and effective resistance they offered on the beaches at 2:00. At 2:29, the pre-dawn aerial attacks by the Allies are met with heavy gunfire. At 3:20, Allied ships encounter barrage mines and light German naval units enter the battle. At 4:48, heavy German artillery enters the battle and makes direct strikes on the invasion fleet. At 5:30 coastal defense are seen including pillboxes and anti-personnel barbed wire and emplacements. At 6:00, SS troops oppose a landing with flame throwing weapons. At 6:22, wrecked landing craft are shown. At 8:11, U.S. Airborne troops who are now prisoner are shown. At 9:20, wrecked WACO gliders are shown as well as Canadian prisoners. At 10:30 the battle continues at Cairns, with heavy bombing by aircraft opposed by railroad-mounted AA guns. At 12:00, civilians are shown fleeing the Allied invasion, as German armored divisions with tanks move forward. A wrecked Canadian Sherman tank is seen at 13:40. In short, the "German version of Invasion" portrays the German Army in the aftermath of D-Day, apparently winning many battles and turning the tide of war in favor of the Wehrmacht. The film also illustrates how Germany believes it is far from beaten. A unique look at the war from the other side!

History Purposes Only! Instagram - 🤍 Hitler had long been aware that the Anglo-American allies would eventually mount a cross-Channel invasion, but, as long as they dissipated their forces in the Mediterranean and as long as the campaign in the east demanded the commitment of all available German forces, he downplayed the threat. By November 1943, however, he accepted that it could be ignored no longer, and in his Directive Number 51 he announced that France would be reinforced. To oversee defensive preparations, Hitler appointed Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, former commander of the Afrika Korps, as inspector of coastal defenses and then as commander of Army Group B, occupying the threatened Channel coast. As army group commander, Rommel officially reported to the longer-serving Commander in Chief West Gerd von Rundstedt, though the entire structure was locked into a rigid chain of command that deferred many operational decisions to the Führer himself. In January 1944 the Allies appointed an invasion commander, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and placed him within a flexible, fully binational Anglo-American chain of command. Bernard Law Montgomery, Rommel’s desert opponent in North Africa, was nominated, under Eisenhower, as commander of the ground invasion forces. Walter Bedell Smith, an American, continued as Eisenhower’s chief of staff, but his other principal subordinates were British: Air Chief Marshal Arthur Tedder as his deputy, Admiral Bertram Ramsay as naval commander, and Air Chief Marshal Trafford Leigh-Mallory as head of the expeditionary air forces. A Free French delegate, Marie-Pierre Koenig, served as liaison between SHAEF and the president of the French Committee of National Liberation, Charles de Gaulle.

'Exploring The Epic Remains Of The Allied D-Day Landings' The Allied Invasion of Normandy in June 1944 was one of the most spectacular pieces of military planning in history, with every element planned to the tiniest detail. However, one of the biggest problems the Allied planners faced was exactly how to provide the invasion force with the supplies they needed to sustain the assault without access to a major French port. The disastrous Dieppe raid in 1942 had shown that capturing a heavily fortified French port would be extremely costly and had absolutely no guarantee of success. And so Allied planners came up with a rather ingenious solution. Instead of risking the lives of thousands of troops by taking a port like Le Havre or Cherbourg, the Allies decided to bring one with them. In this episode of 'Traces of World War Two', war historian James Rogers visits the remnants of the various mulberry harbours that still exist on the beaches of Arromanches in Normandy.

This covers the landings on June 6, 1944. More than 160,000 troops landed along a 50 mile stretch of heavily fortified structures of French settlements along the coastline, to ﬁght on the beaches in France where Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which, "we will accept nothing less than full victory.’ More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft supported this effort, and by day's end, the Allies gained a foothold in Continental Europe. The cost in lives was high. More than 9,000 were lost, but their sacrifice allowed more than 100,000 to begin the slow, hard slog across Europe, to defeat Germany.

#normandylanding #dday #operationoverlord On June 6, 1944, Allies begin Invasion of Normandy. Daniels, along with the whole 1st Infantry Division is on a landing craft, nearing heavily defended Omaha beach. At one point, the machine gunner of Daniels's boat is killed by a shot to the head, which prompts everybody on the boat to duck. Turner orders the driver to gain full speed so they can reach the beach as fast as possible and breach the seawall. When the boat reaches the shore, the ramp is dropped and a destroyed boat rams into Daniels' boat, throwing him on the floor. While most of Daniels' comrades from the boat are killed violently by machine gun fire, Daniels escapes by flipping over the side of the boat. Turner guides Daniels to the nearest cover on the beach, where he takes him out of a shell shock state and orders him to pick up a bangalore from a dismembered soldier and finish his job by taking it to the seawall so they can make a breach. The US forces suffer heavy casualties on the beach, due to lack of proper cover and constant artillery fire. Daniels reaches the seawall and, despite struggling with connecting two pieces of the bangalore, manages to make the explosion with help of Zussman. The explosion blows up the barbed wire and the US forces use the passage to make a push to the bunkers. Daniels participates in the clearance of four German bunkers on the beach cliffs. Upon clearing the fourth bunker, Pierson orders Zussman and Daniels to retake the fifth, smallest one. Daniels enters through the door and gets melee attacked by a Wehrmacht soldier, but is saved by Zussman who tackles the soldier and wrestles him. However, the German soldier stabs Zussman in the abdomen, and attacks Daniels again. Daniels manages to subdue the soldier by smashing his head with his helmet. Daniels then grabs Zussman's pistol and kills the German soldier rushing towards them. Zussman bleeds heavily from the knife wound, and can't walk. Daniels drags him out of the bunker, through trenches and to the nearby field hospital. While Daniels tries to keep him alive, Zussman starts losing consciousness, as all medics are busy with treating other wounded soldiers. After some time a medic finally arrives to assist Zussman, after which Turner brings the rest of the squad to a nearby farm, where they keep off German reinforcements and destroy a GPF cannon shelling the beach. After the cannon is disabled, Daniels returns to Zussman who was treated successfuly. Surviving German soldiers surrender, and the beach is safe.

Thursday marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, a major turning point in World War II. It helped lead to the defeat of Nazi forces in Europe. More than 150,000 American, British and Canadian troops landed on the shores of northern France on June 6, 1944. About 2,500 of the 73,000 U.S. soldiers who fought in the battle died. As a 23-year-old army medic, Ray Lambert saved countless lives in Normandy, despite being wounded. Now 98, he recently co-wrote a book called "Every Man A Hero." Jan Crawford reports.

On that night of 6 June none of us expected the invasion any more. There was a strong wind, thick cloud cover, and the enemy aircraft had not bothered us more that day than usual. But then - in the night - the air was full of innumerable planes. We thought, 'What are they demolishing tonight?' But then it started. I was at the wireless set myself. One message followed the other. 'Parachutists landed here - gliders reported there,' and finally 'Landing craft approaching.' . . . In the morning a huge naval force was sighted - that was the last report our advanced observation posts could send us, before they were overwhelmed. Right in the middle of all the turmoil I got orders to go with my car for a reconnaissance towards the coast. With a few infantrymen I reported to a lieutenant. While he was still talking to me to explain the position, a British tank came rolling towards us from behind, from a direction in which we had not even suspected the presence of the enemy. The enemy tank immediately opened fire on us. Resistance was out of the question. . . At first I was rather depressed, of course. I, an old soldier, a prisoner of war after a few hours of invasion. But when I saw the material behind the enemy front, I could only say, 'Old man, how lucky you have been!'. . . And when the sun rose the next morning, I saw the invasion fleet lying off shore. Ship beside ship. And without a break, troops, weapons, tanks, munitions, and vehicles were being unloaded in a steady stream. #worldwar2 #wehrmacht #weltkrieg
US troops embarking on the journey to the beaches of Normandy with this incredible original D-Day footage where US Troops storm the Beaches of Normandy in a effort to secure the beachheads and silence the German gunners once and for all. Filmed 0n June 6 1944.
George Ciampa had never left the United States before being drafted into the army to fight Nazi Germany in 1944. But at 18-years-old, he was on the shores of Normandy in France, collecting the dead. Paul Golz was a reluctant 19-year-old with the German army, sent to Normandy to try and block the Allied invasion. He was tasked with carrying ammunition for a machine gun crew. Seventy-five years later, both men mark the living memory of one of the most significant moments of the 20th century. And as world leaders gathered in Normandy Thursday to mark the enduring legacy of D-Day, these men, both now in their 90s, recounted what it was like. “The government didn't want bodies lying around for other troops coming in to see,” Ciampa told VICE News from his home in Palm Springs. “We gathered them as quickly as we could.” Before he could bury the dead, Ciampa had to survive landing at Utah Beach. “You're seeing guys getting hit. You're seeing bodies,” he said. “I was scared to death, tell you the truth.” Golz was 14 years old when he heard the German army had marched into Poland. By 19 he’d been drafted into that same army. “I saw the American wounded,” he told VICE News from the village of Königswinter in Germany. “The German wounded, I didn't really notice them until I heard them scream: 'Comrade, help me.’ That's when I understood ‘the hero's’ death. Nobody wants to die a hero’s death. Those are all young kids who want to live.” Ciampa and Golz represent the thinning ranks of soldiers from both sides of the war that are still alive to tell the story of the largest military invasion in history. They hope their legacy lives beyond their generation. “I do think that we have to tell these stories,” said Golz. “These young people, who haven't experienced it, they have to realize that because of this successful invasion, we have had 70 years of peace. They should always preserve that, preserve the democracy that we gained because of it.” Subscribe to VICE News here: 🤍 Check out VICE News for more: 🤍 Follow VICE News here: Facebook: 🤍 Twitter: 🤍 Tumblr: 🤍 Instagram: 🤍 More videos from the VICE network: 🤍
