The fatal design flaw in Hitler's D-Day defences - Winston Churchill's War


In June 1944, the time for Operation Overlord had finally arrived. After years of debate and Winston Churchill's numerous objections and peripheral campaigns, the Allies were about to launch the second front in France. An attack operation that Stalin had long called for. On the outcome of Operation Overlord, depended the fate of the entire war. Churchill said "the hour of our greatest effort and action is approaching. We march with valiant allies who count on us as we count on them the flashing eyes of all our soldiers, sailors and airmen must be fixed upon the enemy on their front and when the signal is given the whole circle of avenging nations will hurl themselves upon the foe and better out the life of the cruelest tyranny which I had ever sought to bar the progress of mankind"
