The Norwegian word for a Norwegian is Norman. The Vikings, many of whom were were Norwegians, sailed around the north Atlantic, north sea and English channel for a century or two. Mostly they landed, raped and pillaged for a day or two, then went home with their booty. One day some of them landed …in the part of north-western France that we now call Normandy. They decided to conquer the place and set up shop there. After a bit the French king decided that if you can't beat them, get them to join us. Their chief was created Duke of Normandy by the king and peace broke out. By the time that Duke William conquered England, the Normans were French - they no longer even spoke Norwegian.

For instance, you can pray outdoors or even preach outdoors because people can get up and walk out, but it is illegal for teachers to start 'preaching' and talking about religion, hinting about which religion is right.… This is because students are not given the ability to get up and walk out. Establishment Clause. ( Full Answer )
Why did the Allies choose an assault through Normandy and not in the south of France or continuing up through Italy?
To transport the Allied forces based in England would have been a huge undertaking, crossing U boat lines and sailing all the way down the European coastline. Crossing the English channel was a tad easier being only 26 miles across. Thus, the logistics of attacking through the south of France or thr…ough Italy were impossible. The time and movement involved would have also alerted the Axis forces, which would have made such an attack extremely costly. There were only a limited number of spots across the channel which were feasible. This could have also been very costly if the Axis had been certain that's what the allies would do. But clever manipulation of intelligence, involving a "secret" message on a British corpse, dummy battalions composed of wood and inflatable tanks, and fake message traffic, convinced the Axis that the landing would take place in the south of France, and that a fake landing would be aimed at Normandy. This was so convincing that when the landing actually happened, it was many hours before the German High Command was convinced that the Normandy landing was the real thing. there is also the slight problem that to invade Spain or Italy they would have had to attack Africa and gain a foothold there first ( Full Answer )
Several. 1. It was the largest invasion army ever gathered. 2. It allowed the Allies to penetrate and gain a foothold in Hitler's "fortress Europe" for the first time since the disaster of the British Expeditionary Force's retreat from Dunkirk in France in 1940. 3. It marked the beginning o…f the end of the German Third Reich. 4. It helped end World War II, not without great cost in terms of human lives and suffering. 5. It began the liberation of France. Vive la France, vive la liberte! 6. It showed that a multinational force (British, French, American, Canadian, Austrialian, New Zealander) could successfully coordinate and carry out a hazardous and difficult offensive military campaign against a tough and well trained army. (Yeah we did this in World War One, but nowhere near as decisively as D Day at Normandy.) ( Full Answer )

You appear to be suffering from the common delusion that Normandy is a place rather then a region covering 12,000 square miles - the size of Maryland. As you are coming from Mons, however, I presume you are a military history buff looking for the D-day landing beaches, probably Utah and Omaha. To vi…sit these, you need to get to CARENTAN, which is on the railway line from Paris to Cherbourg. If you are driving, take the A7 autoroute into France, then the A2, the A1 southbound, then the A29 towards Le Havre; cross the Pont de Normandie and join the A13 to Caen, then the N13 towards Cherbourg.

You must use a mixing console that has more than one "bus" (output channel). Ideally, you would have a four-buss, or larger, mixing console. Two busses would be dedicated to Left and Right House (for the audience to listen to). Then you would have two busses left over that you could mix differently …for other uses, like a stereo stage mix. Each channel of the console allows you to send its output to any or all of the busses. So you adjust each channel's buss outputs ("sends") until the balance sounds pleasing to the audience, and the performer(s). ( Full Answer )
