D-DAY 1944
Many lives were lost

6 June 1944- A Calculated Risk

Thursday, 6 June 2019

In 1944, and against the odds, General Dwight D. Eisenhower accepted the risk and subsequent bloodshed in order to prevent more of it. His leadership freed France from Nazi Germany occupation and was the beginning of the end of the war in Europe.

General Eisenhower was mocked by the left, portrayed as a dullard, stupid and ignorant. He wasn’t. Not by a long shot.

6 JUNE 1944 – The Fallen

D-Day 1944 Tribute -The-Fallen-25

“The objective was to make a visual representation of 9000 people drawn in the sand which equates the number of Civilians, Germans Forces and Allies that died during the D-day landings, 6th June during WWII as an example of what happens in the absence of peace.

“There will be no distinction between nationalities, they will be known only as ‘The Fallen’. It does not propose to be a celebration or condemnation, simply a statement of fact and tribute to life and its premature loss.” [via]

The creators’ motives appear to be honorable. Although the work was temporary, it’s stunning – a visual example of the thousands of lives sacrificed in the name of Freedom. As bloody and violent as it was, this particular D-Day and H-Hour was the beginning of the end to violent warfare in Europe.

Was there fear on 6 June 1944? With out a doubt, yet the men who selflessly stormed the beaches and cliffs of Normandy had amazing courage and unimaginable fortitude to fight for what they believed in against incredible odds.

And they won.

6 June 1944 – D-Day

Saturday, 6 June 2009

Today, 6 June, is Memorial Day in South Korea and National Day in Sweden.

But more importantly, it is the Anniversary of the 1944 Normandy Invasion of Nazi-held France, commonly referred to as D-Day. There were many D-Days and H-Hours, but most folks remember this one.

God bless the brave and the fallen, who selflessly pulled it off with honor… on our behalf.

Veteran Amy Oops has a nice tribute as well.
