Of course us British would jump at the chance to invade France!

если б эту высадку хоть кто то встречал все бы было намного интереснее (хоть на Спасти рядового Района было бы похоже). только десант непойми куда забросили

Why you pronounce "but" as "buhuh"? You need some tutoring how to pronounce. youtube.com/results?search_query=%23stupidbritishaccent #stupidbritishaccent

Dude hearing the radio broadcast at the beginning gave me chills I can’t imagine turning on the radio and hearing that happening live that would have been so intense

Production quality could have been better. Seems like made by low budget low skilled production house

The Cliff Notes of why is the allies spent a lot of time and money in making the Calais area look like the main attack. In boxing terms the Allies kept showing a left jab and instead threw a roundhouse right. Hitlers belief that the real attack would be Calais helped because it locked up reserves that could have stopped one of the beaches from succeeding. Stopping the entire invasion was not really in the cards but delay would have given the Germans more time to build defenses farther inland.

So much false and forgotten info in this video. Maybe stick to engineering.

If d day had failed, I’d suggest we’d invade fascist Spain and enter France that way

So here's a question. How different would the D-Day invasion be if it were preformed today with modern military technology and Doctorine?

The video is educational. {I just "subsribed.} It has good information about the military engineers (Army and Navy) that came up with good inventions such as the concrete portable "docks" / "piers". Salute to the brave R.A.F. aviators flying Spitfires with cameras over enemy territory!

The engineers did their jobs / tasks very well. Salute to them, and the men that put them together.

The problem was not with them but with the overpaid numbskulls (Generals & Admirals, Colonels & Commanders) at Allied Headquarters in London. Normandy was a horrible choice for a landing area as is borne out in your segment about the massive storms and waves that ruined the portable harbors / piers / docks "Mulberries".

The sensible place to invade occupied France would have been southward from the area of St. Nazaire to Biarritz / Bayonne area (Bay of Biscay / Cote L'Argent area) which was in "Vichy France". Few German soldiers, and no hedgerows to get tangled up / bogged down for weeks as in Normandy. No flooded drop zones for the Allied Paratroopers to drown in. Very few if any German cannons and machine guns mounted like they were around Normandy, especially at "Omaha Beach". More peaceful waters to sail / land in. After a few weeks then land at Dunkerqe for a second front in August.

I wonder what the performance wouldve looked like for the Allies if they knew at that time what the Nazi’s were doing to humans in concentration camps. I wonder if everyone knew then I strongly believe the morale wouldve been so high that it would’ve shown dramatically on paper, above air and witness-able with your eye. I believe it wouldve had that much of an impact. Because they were conditioned properly and were fed the proper propaganda to motivate their forces but they did not know to what extreme their enemies behavior was. To know that it was so bad they would be prime examples of evil globally for the next 70+ years, video games would be made after them, movies, endless documentaries etc…only if they wouldve known I believe the war wouldve been fought much differently.

Why was Normandy selected for D-Day

My answer: Because why not

Hi sYXYG_F1EK0&t=7m30s 7:30 in, the planes here look like Typhoons rather than Sp (though I may be mistaken) but either way they are shown with D-Day markings - which of course would not have been applied ahead of D-Day.

Two glaring omissions in the first 4 minutes. American, British and CANDIANS landed on D Day and the advance in Italy was not a solely American operation, British and Commonwealth (notably Indian)forces were heavily involved in moving up the East of the Peninsula as were the Free Poles and the RAF.

The shortest way across was to Calais. Thinking that's where they would land, it's exactly where Hitler had all of his troops. The Allies fooled him with an "end around run".
