One of the biggest questions of the Second World War is how the amphibious invasion of Normandy France on June 6 1944 was one of the major turning points of World War II The greatest factors that made the amphibious invasion of Normandy or better known as D-Day successful were the planning ahead the strategies used to trick the enemy as a result of great leadership and the invasion itself with how the allies brought fresh troops over constantly to overwhelm the German army The result of Operation Overlord being successful was a major turning point in the war and started the allies momentum towards winning back Europe from axis powers Not only was D-Day one of the greatest invasions in history but also one of the greatest gambles in history The plan of the allied invasion was first introduced in January of 1943 by the United States at the Casablanca Conference with the other allied nations The USs proposal received enough votes but still only set up a combined planning staff The plan however was not accepted until August 1943 at the Quebec Conference in Canada The staff in charge of planning the invasion named this Operation Overlord Sir Allen Brook a British Chief was reluctant to realize how important an advanced plan of attack was He could not understand why the US needed to prepare so far in advance He called the US rigid and inflexibleMiller 16 not realizing that the US was doing a terrific job in procurement ship building training troops and in preparing the supplies necessary to place one and a half million troops in Normandy Most of the preparations that made D-Day possible was led by US General Dwight D Eisenhower Originally General George C Marshall was passionately pursuing to lead this operation but US president Franklin D Roosevelt said that he could not spare such an important general Marshall was sad yet honored
