Shawn Perryman's insight:

This message was to tell people what happened in case the mission failed. He wrote it down in case he and his team mates died. He planned to attack at that time and decided in case he didn't come back he'd leave a note so they knew exactly what happened. He explains that the Navy and Bravery did all they could do. So he wrote down why they are not to blame, he then proceeds to blame hiself. Then July 5th is of course the day that it was at the time. Basically this explains what is going on.

Shawn Perryman's insight:

Basically, this document is saying to keep the peoples eyes looking straight forward. Don't let them see the side of what they're doing. It is also giving them tips on being better during the war. It also says that he believes in them, and that they are very courageous for doing what they're doing. Then it ends with a "Good luck!". Signed Dwight Eisenhower. This is pretty much a primary document that tells them to be good at it and that they are very skilled at fighting over something. The end.

Shawn Perryman's insight:

This document is a letter from Eisenhower to the Marshall informing him of bombing. He tells him of when it happened and how successful it had been. He also talks about the ammount of planes and what he doesn't know is going on. He says that they didn't really notify him when it happend, and he still has some information to pick up. That is mostly what it's about, in a short summary.

I learned that he led a few invasions. He made his first star in 1941 too. I learned of when he invaded Italies mainland. I also know now when he joined the war. That is pretty much most of what I've learned and read about from this page.
