Victory to allies.
D-day was a horrible and dreadful day. The landings commenced on Tuesday, 6 June 1944. There was a total estimate of 12,000 casualties during the battle, for the allies, and between 4-9 thousand Nazi soldiers died.
Although the allies won a very crucial battle for the war, they lost so many soldiers, in such little time. As soon as the doors opened to the landing boats, soldiers where slaughtered with machine guns from the defense towers above the beach.
One man, Charles H. "Harry" Heinlein, a D-Day survivor told an American newspaper about his experience when the ramp came down…
"I just remember when the ramp came down, me and Joe came out, and my shoes went through a little bit of water, and I hit the sand. I heard a voice saying, 'Run like hell!' Maybe it was in my mind, I don't know. But I started running like hell.”
The actual battle wasn’t called D-DAY, Omaha beach,
was just apart of the Normandy landings,
which was all the way up the coast, D-Day was just used as day it started.
The battle was split into two waves. an airborne assault landing of 24,000 British, American and Canadian soldiers and a land/water landing of troops on the coast of France at 6:30.
