Did the tactics of the Us help win

On the D day invasion

What are some strategies used on D-day

D day was a very important and crucial part of the war. If we did not win this invasion the outcome of the war could be very different. If the Germans had won they would have taken over all of Europe. D day was not the only beach being invaded. Many other beaches were invaded but Normandy was the most important one. I believe that the strategies and tactics used on the Normandy invasion played a big role on the win
D-Day - A Critical Moment In History

The United states used fake radio frequencies to mislead the Germans


The United States stockpiled weapons and troops in England so we could use them all at once and have a quicker and more effective attack

On the day of invasion we didn't only invade by water we also invaded by air. When the troops parachuted in they scattered troops to confuse Germans

How Did These Strategies Help Us Win

We used an inflatable fake army that tricked the Germans. This helped us win because it made it easier for the Germans to believe that the attack was in a different location than Normandy. This was really helpful because when we did attack there were less German troops.

We were economically ahead of the Germans so we used that as an advantage to buy weapons and resources


The germans believed we were attacking another town called calais. They believed it was an easier place to attack so they assumed we would invade at that point. We bombed calais to make them believe that that was the point of attack we also sent fake troops there and created fake tanks tracks and made truck prints in the dirt to make it even more believable

What factors played a big role on the invasion

On the day of the invasion the weather was really poor so the Germans didn't think we would attack, this caught them off guard when we attacked


We built millbury harbors that looked like giant bridges so we could transport vehicles and made the invasion easier

We sent out fake propaganda stories about a fake attack in a town called calais. The Germans beilived that the attack was in that town so on the day of the invasion it was easier and we didnt have to fight as many troops because they had them lined up in calais
