Abstract:

The extensive allied planning coupled with aggressive execution was critical to the success of the Normandy invasion and the allies defeat of the Germans in France. The Normandy Campaign resulted in the largest planning, buildup, and execution of a single mission during World War II. This operation was critical to the overall success of the allied campaign to regain the European Theater and bring the war to a end. The allies could have continued to execute war in Europe for many years without the Normandy Campaign. The campaign was critical in the defeat of the Germans and gaining a foothold in Europe.
