What was the strategy of Operation Overlord?

The strategy of Overlord was to confuse the Germans as to where and when landings would take place, and to land the maximum number of men and armoured vehicles by sea and air on the FIRST day. The sheer power of 175,000 men with many AFV's worked and forced the Germans back.

The strategy of Operation Overlord... Was to win by deceiving and misleading the enemy. Germany thought we were attacking 150 miles from the actual attack zone...
