I believe that there will be a day when all wars come to an end. The question is only, who will be there to see that day?
Americans really had the short end of the straw that day. As soon as you land on normandy beach, dozens of mg42‘s, countless hidden snipers, armored bunkers, artillery and thousands of highly trained german soldiers await you. Not really a sight to look forward to.
now the grandchildren of these heroes are internally fighting the new Nazis of Normandy - the United States democrat party. I wear my red MAGA hat daily so they can easily identify me.
It's awesome to see the breakdown of the mighty battle....it actually puts you in the boots of those who had to hit those beaches that June morning.
Great cause? Seems like a wreckless stupid strategy to me.
Great Documentary, thank*U* for sharing 💪💪💪👍*
is it me or the bullet in the mg42 is not in the right side ??
It's amazing that only now is Europe being truly destroyed.
Alt History: "Disaster at D-DAY"
In 1943 Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, Hitler’s handpicked man for the defense of France reveals his conclusion after his inspection after viewing the German defensive wall AKA the “Atlantic Wall.” He knows that the Allied invasion will be massive and beyond comprehension, to get past the wall it would have to be. Rommel orders at least an extra ten divisions to be stationed at Normandy; since Rommel believes this would be the area the Allies attacked from since the Atlantic Wall was poorly built around that area. He also believes that the Allies would bring massive air support and try and land troops behind the wall, so he orders at least 15 divisions of the Luftwaffe to be at the ready for the invasion. Rommel finally chooses to fill in all known gaps along the Normandy coast, thus preventing any gaps from increasing when the Allies arrive. Upon request from one of Rommel’s top Lieutenants, he decides to train all units along the Normandy coast with the experienced Panzer Lehr division. A Luftwaffe Lehr unit is formed with ten divisions of the planes that are being sent to Normandy with five as reserve.
June 5th 1944 - General Dwight D. Eisenhower decides to go forward with the invasion, even though the weather has not improved. Over 4000 ships set sail for Normandy, not knowing the Nazis are waiting, and eager to crush them.
June 5th 1944 - The Allies arrive late to Normandy due to a navigation error, and German planes spot the Allied fleet approaching Normandy, the planes radio back to the Normandy HQ and notify Rommel that the Allies are approaching with 4000+ ships. Rommel knew that the Allies would send in ships, but that was basically the entire American and British fleets. Multiple plane divisions are also spotted, and they are guessed as landing craft for troops behind the Atlantic Wall.
Rommel orders all AA guns to be at the ready, and for the Luftwaffe to begin takeoff, and for the Luftwaffe and Panzer Lehr troops to be at the ready for his command. The largest sea born invasion is about to begin.
The Luftwaffe goes in for the attack. 1,200 Luftwaffe fighters and bombers spread out over the western French coast and attack the invaders, who are unprepared for such a surprise attack. The Luftwaffe leaves to refuel and rearm, and continuously pounds the invading army.
June 5th 1944 - The Allied fleet arrives with guns blazing and they are all targeted at the Atlantic Wall. Hundreds of Higgins boats with about 30 troops in each begin approaching the coast, and Rommel orders five Luftwaffe Lehr divisions to attack the Higgins boats, and the other five to attack Carrier ships.
June 5th 1944 - The Allies are losing troops faster than they can send them out, and only about 1/10 of Higgins boats have made it ashore, only for the troops to be destroyed by the MG42 nests. Most of the troops by plane however, have made it behind the wall, and are now making their advance into French territory.
By VGz9j-HbieU&t=23m00s 23:00 hours, Allied troops who made it, along with divisions of surviving Sherman tanks, begin to advance through the French countryside but little do they know that over 20 divisions trained by the Panzer Lehr are waiting. When they reach Nazi camps, they attack. After several attacks through the night, German commanders attack and push any remaining allies toward the west. The mighty Tiger assault divisions quickly destroyed whatever they found ... tanks, soldiers and even anti-tank guns.
June 5th 1944 - Radio broadcasts start pouring in that the Germans with multiple Panzer divisions, and they are wiping out all units that were dropped behind the main German line who are unprepared for such a surprise attack.
By June 6th - All allied strongholds are abandoned and the German Wehrmacht retake Western Europe.
General Eisenhower is notified of the advanced German defenses and he must make a life changing decision, either sacrifice more troops and hope to break through or he can withdraw all units and save hundreds of thousands of lives.
Eisenhower makes the decision to withdraw all troops and return to Britain. Rommel is informed that the Allies are retreating and he gives the orders to send out all of the Luftwaffe, and destroy all the ships they can. The remaining five Luftwaffe divisions are sent out and harass the Allies until they begin to run out of fuel. They return to a hero’s welcome, the Germane have successfully defended against the largest invasion in history, and they could not be any happier.
June 6th 1944- The Allies are crushed that they were defeated at Normandy and they have lost a good deal of ships and troops. Over 2750 ships were lost and over 400,000 men.
June 7th 1944- President Roosevelt, along with the Chiefs of Staff, meet in a secret meeting to discuss the future of the war. Since the Allies lost at Normandy, they are seriously thinking about withdrawing from the European front, and focus on the Japanese.
They really are the greatest generation
Stupid stubborn idiots in charge cost the lives of thousands of gi s they didn't trust the radar simply because they weren't American made..
RIP to the Fallen American soldiers. We will not forget you! From Netherlands

In case the Normandy Landings were a failure, General Eisenhower wrote:
Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based on the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt, it is mine alone
Seriously, The soldiers are too young to die & half of them hadn’t even graduated from high school because I’ve watched this documentary a couple of years ago which featured all of these kids becoming soldiers trying to fight the Germans on this empty beach only to get shot dead while moving in on shore in order to liberate Paris & all but they had to tear down the wall .
