My Dad and I are both Vets and he is a WW2 Vet.He thinks the way those men were sacrificed and the way the whole invasion was played out was bad.He was in the Navy aboard a Destroyer and thinks they could have handled it way better.Now we all know that Germany had to be stopped but the whole invasion was put on by Roosevelt because the Russians were pressuring him to open another front to take the pressure off of them.Think about this.If Russia would have fell(which would have happened)we would not have had a Korean or Vietnam War.Even Patton told Ike that the Russians were gonna be a problem for us and he wanted to wipe em out.At the time Ike thought he was crazy but he had the right idea all along.Now we would have lost some more men before Germany would have been defeated but not near when you add up the losses in Korea and Vietnam and the Cold War.
