4. Who won the battle and why p2 the German strategy.
  • The German went well because of different factors. The main was mainly tanks, antitank units, troops, and artillery all played a part in the battle of Normandy. The infantry armed with antitank weapons were placed in strategic points in the battle. Also they put up towers fitted with antitank weapons or 88mm Flak guns but was not good because that American ships could bombard them. Artillery had an important role to play in German defensive plans not as a tank-killer, but as a means to force Allied commanders to close down inside their tanks, there by reducing their visibility so that the tanks got lost from their troops. The Germans used heavy artillery to make the allied troops to take cover so that tank hunting units can be deployed. In the end the allied troops won the beach and ending up winning the war.

6. What was the Atlantic wall ?
  • The Atlantic wall was a line of bunkers along the cliffs on the beach. They were filled with heavy rifles and artillery. The wall was a big obstacle in the invasion. Hitler ordered the concrete that what would have made an actual wall went to defending Hitler’s submarine bases. Rommel was a inspector. Rommel inspected the beach defences and found them altogether inadequate. He immediately set to building improvements, mine fields all over the beach, and putting iron spikes and wooden obstacles like tree trunks. The wall were many different types of fortifications like some are built into the ground, and some built on the top of the ground, and some are cannons.

  • All of the beaches had a different plan. Utah Beach was the code name for the right flank or westernmost, of the Allied landing beaches during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. Utah was added to the invasion plan toward the end of the planning stages, when more landing craft became available. The primary objective at Omaha was to secure a beachhead. Gold lay in the area assigned to the 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division commanded by Major General Douglas Alexander Graham. The Juno landings provided flanking support to the British drive on Caen from Sword, as well as to capture the German airfield at Carpiquet west of Caen.
