Funnyjunk Announcement to me
Thumb orgies and giving users comment thumbs through scripts, etc. are banned. This cheats votes from users who post good comments and give them to people who spam/cheat.

If you participate in a thumb orgy you de-value thumbs. It leads back to the old saying: "If we print billions of dollars and hand it out, then everyone will be rich!"

Comment Rankings Changes:

From now on, only non-deleted comments in the past 90 days are considered for comment rankings. This should help stop thumb orgies and people who get thumbs up through sketchy means and then delete the comment later.

well sort off

if you consider the fact that the British had little to no resistance on the beaches because there the naval bombings hit the targets, meanwhile the american beaches where fully functional

Americans still made up the single largest nationality there: the British Second Army contained Canadian troops. Numbers by country were 73,000 Americans, 62,000 British and 22,000 Canadians.

Is it safe to say most of the material used to wage war during that battle was made in America? That would be quite the contribution.

I feel like since we weren't under constant air bombardment, it was easier to make ships and tanks and planes in America. I'm just guessing though.

The US had several massive benefits. It has always been a warmongering nation and that's not an insult as it has worked as much in its favour as it has against it. In this case it was favourable as it had a large number of troops and resources at hand for warfare that the British direly needed because of their proximity to the Nazi frontlines and the constant bombardment.

The US contributed with weapons, troops, food and vehicles to the war effort for a long time prior to D-Day. However it is arguable that the US could have put a big stopper to the war very early on numerous occasions had they simply committed fully to it.

The truth is though that the biggest contribution to D-Day was not from the allies, but from Austria. To be more exact, Adolf Hitler. The notoriously stupid decision to invade russia (in the winter no less, a feat that has only ever been accomplished by the Mongols) opened up the war on another front. German troops had been thrown at the russian lines fairly successfully for some time but the push-back against them saw Nazis brutally massacred in droves.

The simple truth is that D-Day was 156,000 men against 10,000. Whilst the allies did take about 12,000 losses that day the Normandy landings were a one-sided impossibility as for one thing, the Germans probably didn't have enough bullets to fight them all off.

Had it not been for Adolf's horrible decision there would have not only been more Nazi troops but maybe even some russian reinforcements to help bolster the inland defences as opposed to an ever-closing circle that was being closed from both the east and the west. The shocking truth is that had it not been for that one decision we really don't know for sure how the war would have panned out. It may have lasted even longer... it may have been a win for the Nazis. Arguably the other decision that lost the war was Pearl Harbour.

It's a perfect lesson to teach you why you don't poke the bear with a needle. The Axis did it twice. They lost.

This is absolutely true, but there is more to it.   
1. The Brits fooled Adolf into thinking that they were coming from Dover across, not Normandy. Hitler stationed most of his troops at Calais thus.   
2. The soldiers hired to defend the coast were poorly trained and didn't stand a chance against the more professional allies.    
3. The French resistance movement had given the allies near to perfect intelligence on the beach defenses, giving the allies an upper hand.

The Omaha defenders that massacred American troops were from the highly trained and experienced 352 German division

all the other divisions guarding the Normandy coast were mostly new recruits or Soviet prisoners forced to fight

It was probably because, the US soldiers that stormed Omaha beach that received the most caualties, that that particular moment went down well in history.

Obviously Germany contributed most to D-Day.

They lent trenches of bullets and explosives to Allied soldiers.

Most of the equipment used against the allied soldiers on D-day was English anyway.
During the failed invasion of Dunkirk the Brits had to abandon more than 370 thousand tons of Brit&US equipment on the beach when they desperately retreaded.

The Germans put that gear to good use, but they kept most of it in occupied France figuring that if the Brits invaded again any German armed with an Allied-made gun or vehicle would be able to scavenge ammo and spare parts from dead Allied troops.

So the allied troops storming Omaha beach were shot at with their own guns.
Out of the 30 or so bunkers only like 4 had German machine guns in them.

That all sounds like ********, Germans force multiplication was far superior to ours and they were well supplied and with better weapons, why scavenge and use second rate British weapons.

Because everyone likes free ****.

All the good stuff was thrown at the real fighting army.
The poorly trained occupational forces were only really expected to fight some partisans and some insurrection. Hence the people in charge decided that they could save on costs by equipping some of them with the free guns.

Also, look it up it's true.

But there were old men and retirees in Berlin fighting with panzerfausts and boy armour against Russian tanks, even with a small fraction of there empire left.

Ah, you are referring to the Volksstrum very late in the war.

They had almost no weapons at all.
They were given foreign, obsolete and special super cheap weapons especially for them.
They were even given shotguns and hunting rifles confiscated from hunters with gun licenses.
Still less than 1 of 5 Volksstrum fighters had any gun at what so ever.
They had so little equipment that citizens were forced to give all their old clothes and rags to the volksstrum or face death penalty, still they were never given uniforms, just small armbands.
Some were given Panzerfausts, but it was extremely tiny numbers.

According to the book "Desperate measure: last ditch weapons of the Nazi volksstrum"
The volksstrum were only given 0.02% of all panzerfausts made.

Paris was declared an open city you see, the Germans could take it without any resistance so it wouldn't be destroyed

any spot where a German died in WW2 had more casualties then the "invasion of paris"

I would like to start this rant with saying that any one who participated in the D-Day invasion put themselves in huge danger. and Hitler did nothing wrong
But This fact is misleading.
While the British 2nd army had about 83,115 only 61,715 where British.
The Allied Casualties numbered around 10, 000, with a breakdown of 2,700 British, 946 Canadians, and 6,603 Americans. With Canadians suffered the highest casualty rate of any of the waves with 50 % on Juno Beach.
The American Forces where assigned the toughest held beaches, mainly because of lack of Intel as opposed to logic or reasoning.

American casualties were also higher because of their refusal to use british tanks with special attachments , aka Wilson's funnies. These provided shelter, cleared mine fields and took out pill boxes. The Americans wouldn't have them because they looked ''stupid''.

Also because The naval bombardment was insufficient because the ships didn't reach the coast as they were scared of being hit. This meant that that instead of bombing the German positions, they scared the **** out of some fishes instead.

The battle of Stalingrad one isn't particularly impressive. No one died in the "battle for Paris" as Paris was surrendered by the French.

The French government surrendered after Hitler asked them to, saying that he would hate to bomb the **** out of a city as beautiful as Paris.
