          Must have been awfully lonely there since the rest of the army didn’t arrive until 6 June 1944.

            Wrong answer, Grasshopper!

            The Army had been there for months, expecting the Americans and British to attack somewhere -- it's just that HQ guessed wrong.

            My relative fought a defensive action at Normandy, then retreated home towards Germany.

              That looked like a bait and hook response using assumptions

                D-Day (9)

                Here's a question?

                Why couldn't British Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery could not take Caan on day nine of the D-Day Operations?

                Hint: It was due to one man.

                  The reason the op failed though is the lack of aggressivness on the part of the British commanders.

                      Witman, I believe with his Tiger tank he caused alot of grief to the Allies. Plus Montgomery who was so slow and cautious.... until Market Garden that is. Not much of a Monty fan! Keep the questions coming :thumb:

                        Here's one for you.

                        Only 1 battleship in the Allied invasion fleet took part in both the Battle of Jutland in 1916 and the D-Day invasion of Normandy in 1944.

                        Name her.
