Generals Involved in D-Day Air Invasion

Major General Henry Miller, was the general for the U.S in the air battle for D-Day. He lead the U.S. pilots into battle on D-day. General Miller was the only General I could find information about but he was no let down, he lead the U.S. air force to victory in the air.

Goals

The U.S. wanted to end WWII in the air, and they did. The U.S. had a very strong air force. On D-day the U.S. wanted to make Japan to surrender. Japan was the biggest enemy in the air because they had such a large air force. The U.S. wanted to make surrender through the air and they did.

Key Military Strategies

The key strategy used to win D-day was to keep the Japanese army and German army dispersed so they could not mount a counter attack. By the U.S. doing this both enemy armies had no time to breathe they were just getting nailed with attack after attack.

Outcome of the battle

The outcome of this battle was the U.S. dropping atomic bombs on Japan to end the war. Japan surrendered after the U.S. dropped their second atomic bomb on Japan. This outcome was the outcome the U.S. wanted, they may not have wanted it to happen this way but they got the outcome they wanted.

Long Lasting impact of battle

A long lasting impact D-day had was, ending WWII and ending Hitler. Hitler and his Nazis shortly surrendered after D-day.
