June 6, 2016, marked the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day invasion where troops from The United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other Allied forces landed in Normandy to begin the liberation of France and turn the tide of the war against the Nazis. When the Allied forces entered this fight they knew for sure that they were going to open with a knockout blow. Not only were the Allied troops using ships to launch both aerial and naval attacks to clear the landing areas for their troops but also had fighter jets lay down support with airborne assaults. To continue adding pressure to the Nazis, paratroopers were also jumping out of planes and storming the beaches. Paratroopers landed under heavy fire from enemy guns and the shores were also mined and covered with obstacles such as wooden stakes, metal tripods, and barbed wire, making the work of the beach-clearing teams both difficult and dangerous. While the Nazis had their hands full dealing with the ground invasion they didn’t realize that the Allies were multitasking and using their planes to capture bridges, road crossings, and other useful terrains. Allied forces were dealing such heavy blows to the Nazis in succession that they didn’t know how to recover nor counter.
