Best Answer

Eisenhower planned the initial landing and made the proposal to Marshall. That is why Marshall chose him to lead the invasion. Later, Bradley, Montgomery, and others helped with more minute details.

ANS 2 - D-Day planning was well underway before Eisenhower ever got involved. Planning started in early 1943 under Briish General Frederick Morgan. Morgan's huge team studied and selected possible beaches and tide patterns and worked out the complicated logistics of gathering, shipping and landing many thousands of men, vehicles and supplies in a limited time. Eisenhower himself said later that he, Bradley and Montgomery basically okayed or turned down certain parts of the plan. Eisenhower was a "big picture" General and correctly, left details to people who were good at it.
