Historical Information

On the first night, three paratroop divisions were dropped behind the German lines; early the next morning, the Americans launched the great assault at Utah and Omaha beaches on a forty–mile strip along the Normandy coast.

At the Teheran Conference, English Prime Minister Winston Churchill and American President Franklin D. Roosevelt promised Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin that they would launch an invasion in May or June of 1944, and to this pledge they were faithful. After preparations - the most extensive in military history - the invasion was launched on “D-Day” (which meant, with deceptive simplicity, the “day”), June 5 - 6, 1944. On the night of the fifth, three paratroop divisions were dropped behind German lines; in the early morning of the sixth, the Americans launched the great assault at Utah and Normandy beaches on a forty-mile strip along the Normandy coast, and the numerically superior British began the struggle for Caen to the east. “No power in the world,” Hitler had boasted, “can drive us out of this region,” but within five days the Allies had landed sixteen divisions in France. A month later they broke through the German lines defending Paris, and on the twenty-fourth of August, Paris was liberated. No wonder Stalin could cable, “The history of war does not know any such undertaking, so broad in conception, so grandiose in scale, and so masterly in execution.”

This painting was featured on the cover of Stag Magazine in April 1960.
