First, I am really glad to see D-Day remembered here since all the news is riot related. Second, I just read a book about D-Day from the German side. It was a group of lengthy interviews. They noted that the U.S. dominated the sky that day, flying low and hitting their fixed gun emplacements and mobile equipment. They noted that when our equipment was damaged we did not stop to repair but instead called up another tank or whatever and carried on. The Germans were expected to repair their equipment if at all feasible. They also noted that the allies did not use horses but were entirely mechanized whereas the Germans had to use horses for many functions which slowed them down. They were totally overwhelmed once the allies got off the beaches. Thanks to all of you who shared family stores today.
