England and AmericaAnswerAmerican and British soldiers were placed all over England to prepare for the build-up. Many units trained there. The 29th Infantry Division trained 20 months in England. The newly organized units went through a Basic Training, then corps-level tactical training and then amphibious assault training. Each different level of training could be accomplished at various locations.
The units had to practise amphibious assaults. One place they practised landing on beaches similar to ones at Normandy was at Slapton Sands. During one of these night-time practise landings, a portion of the 4th Infantry Divsiion(US) was attacked by German E-boats that resulted in the 749 deaths and the loss of 2 LST's, which was in critical shortage.
