The allied forces decieded to use operation overlord (d-day) in order to get a foothold in Europe. Although they knew there would be hundreds of casualties, they felt it was the best chance to get a foothold in France

D-Day is a generic term, but provided this is in regards to the Allied invasion of Europe, the D-Day landing began on June 6, 1944.

The importance of D-Day in World War II, was that the Allied forces were able to gain a foothold on Normandy, France. From this beach-head, the Allies would eventually (with a great loss of life and several setbacks) eventually bring the war in Europe to an end with Germany's defeat.

During World War II, the 'D-Day' event took place on June 6, 1944. On this day, Allied troops made an amphibious landing on the northern coast of France, in the region of Normandy. Seizing a beach-head in the face of sometimes fierce opposition from German defenders, the Allied troops ensured that 'D-Day' was a success, although much bitter fighting lay ahead before the Allies would succeed in advancing towards Germany and ending the war.

The Allied armies for the simple fact that the German Army was unable to hurl them back into the English Channel. It took nearly a year for the Allies to finally win the war in Europe.

Yes, they did not anticipate where the invasion would take place, not enough land was covered by their troops. They also thought that Dday would be postponed due to weather.

For Skirmish Dday you have to call. I assume it is the same for Oklahoma and other big dday games also.

They were held up because most of their tanks sank. They beach was better defended than most and it was almost impossible to advance to the sea wall.

The Battle of Normandy or the Normandy Campaign are used as operational names.The Popular "Operation Overlord" is the name given to the entire western Allied campaign in France. This is sometimes confused with the name of the actual DDay landings campaign.The Normandy landings were operationally known as "Operation Neptune". This lasted until the landings were completed and the breakthrough into France began. This breakout campaign from Normandy into the rest of France during the Battle of Normandy is operationally known as "Operation Cobra"

Was d-day a success? Yes. DDay is this

User Avatar

D day was just a generic military term for an operation on a specific date it stands for nothing in particular

User Avatar

There was not really any president who led D-Day. It was a combination of leaders and generals, including Winston Churchill and Rossevelt, but who were led by General Eisenhower - Supreme Head of the Alled Forces in WWII.

D-Day were the first operations of the allied invasion in Normandy, France on June 6, 1944. Also called D-Day. Some 150,000 men composed of American, British and Canadian came ashore on the beaches and some 10,000 were killed or wounded. One month later it would estimate more then 1 million more allied men would be in France.
