MY 12 SENTENCE PARAGRAPH ABOUT MY TOPIC.

MY 12 SENTENCE PARAGRAPH ABOUT MY TOPIC.

Ashanae Pickett's insight:

My topic was about the Invasion Of Normandy (D-Day). And it was basically about what was going on during WW1 and WW2. The people that was in the Vietnam War was injured and mostly killed. I honestly think that it was really stupid. Why did this even happen. What made them want to go to war anyways like really. But out of all this i kind of got a better understanding about the Vietnam War and the other wars. All the the people got killed for trying to save other people's lives. But at least they died knowing the people they love will be okay. And as of today it still kind of have a impact on our society. We still talk about the wars that happened back then so that we can all get a better understanding and can tell someone else about it. But this is my final paragraph summary about my topic Invasion Of Normandy(D-Day).

Ashanae Pickett's insight:

In this section i learned that the commander which is General Dwight D. Eisenhower was attacked. And the D-Day operation for june 6, 1944 had brought together land, and air. The beaches were given code names such as UTAH. There were 9 battleships. 23 cruisers. And 104 destroyers. 71 large landing craft of various descriptions as well as troop transports. I honestly think that the numbers were really uneven at everything. Like why did one war only have a certain number of things. Because thats really unfair to be honest. But this is my summary for this website.

Ashanae Pickett's insight:

This is a picture of veterans that was wounded. During Normandy invasion at the Walter Reed hospital. Basically I learned that if you go to war there's a 9 out of 10 chance that your going to end up getting hurt of killed. And the people in this picture are still living. They were well token care of and everything. And if you do go to war be prepared to fight for your life and not to give up just because you got wounded. I wonder how many people ended up staying alive after the war was over.

The National D-Day Memorial located in Bedford, Virginia is tribute to those who bravery and valor fought and died during the invasion during World War II in Normandy in Axis occupied France on June 6, 1944.
Ashanae Pickett's insight:

I learned that D-Day and H-Hour are used for the day and hour on which a combat attack or operation is to be initiated. The army, American expeditionary forces. And the invasion of Normandy was set to happen on June 5, 1944 but that didn't go as planned. The invasion ended up happening the day after it was suppose to happen which was June 6th. So the attack went well but i still don't see why it even happened in the first place. Like really whats the point of it all.

Ashanae Pickett's insight:

I learned that after World War ll had began Germany invaded and occupied northern western France. Normandy invasion began to turn the tide against the Nazis. And Normandy tried preventing Hitler from sending his troops from France to invade. Basically Hitler wanted to invade everything and destroy everyones land just to make his self happy. Allies carried out a massive deception operation intended to make the Germans think the main invasion target was Pas- de- calais(the narrowest point between Britain and France) rather than Normandy. This is what i learned from this website.

Ashanae Pickett's insight:

I learned what kind of weapons they used to kill people. They used tanks to try and run over people with. And to shoot with. It was a first burst of tracer bullets. They were very red, sweeps the gate and then men begin to crouch down to take cover. I want to know why they are doing this to them. And how many people actually took cover.
