Decent Essays
Additionally, there are three main nations in the invasion of Normandy, and many other countries in different armed services. First, the U.S. was one of the three main nations. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and General Bernard Law Montgomery enlarge the size of the target zone and increased the divisions to five for the coastal attack (Ambrose, Stephen E. and Stults, Taylor). United States got two of the five beaches, Utah and Omaha; however, Omaha Beach had the highest difficulty and greatest casualties (Ambrose, Stephen E. and Stults, Taylor). Nazi defenses were positioned on high cliffs, which means their gunners could easily target the U.S. landing crafts before they reached the shore; therefore, more than 2,000 casualties occurred (“D-Day2”).
