The choice of Normandy beaches stunned the Germans as there was no suitable port on the Normandy Coast for the allies to unload the huge amount of supplies and equipment needed for an invasion.
Eisenhower encouraged the Germans to believe there was no way an attack could occur on Normandy beaches by setting up a pretend invasion force in opposite the Calais area in South - East England where the Germans were expecting an attack
The tanks were made of rubber and the landing craft were made of wood. The tents were real and so were the smoking camp stoves to make it easier for the Germans to see them.
In the real invasion area, the camp fires used smokeless fuel and it was being kept as secret as possible.
The Germans were totally unaware of the Mulberry. The Mulberry was a secret weapon that the allies had which acted as secret ports/ artificial harbours which could be towed across the channel containing tanks, trucks and supplies.
