Storyboard Text

  • Holly, do you want to study together for the test tommorrow.
  • Sure, I would love to study with you.
  • Before the Normandy invasion, over 1,000 bombers were hitting German targets daily.
  • To confuse the Germans, the Allies attempted to make it appear as if they were going to attack north of Normandy at Pas de Calais.
  • Prior to the Invasion, was when Germany knew an invasion was inevitable because they noticed all the forces gathering in Britain, along with additional airstrikes.
  • D-Day Preparation was when the Allies amassed troops and equiment in Britain.
  • They jumped at night, landing behind enemy lines.
  • It was important there was a full moon for light, so they only had a small window of time to invade.
  • The first wave of the invasion of Normandy started with paratroopers, men who jumped out of planes using parachutes.
  • The D-Day invasion had been planned for months, but it was almost cancelled due to bad weather.
  • At the same time, underground members of the French Resistance sabotaged the Germans by cutting telephone lines and destroyed railroads.
  • During the next stage of the battle, thousands of planes dropped on German defenses. Warships started to bomb the beaches from the water.
  • I think I know...... wait I think we forgot to talk about the results of D-Day.
  • They were able to push their way inland, allowing for more troops to land in France over the next several days.
  • Exactly. Over 150,000 troops landed on Normandy by the end of D-Day.
  • Oh wait, we forgot to cover one thing.
  • The date of D-Day was June 6, 1944.
  • Over 425,000 Allied and German troops were killed, wounded, or went missing during the Battle of Normandy.
