  • The Build Up to D-Day
    Background on the logistic build-up - The invasion of Normany on 6 June 1944 has been written about time and time again. The heroism and technology that achieved so much has been well documented. However, an old military phrase that 'tactics is the art of the logistically possible' rings very true. Without the vast support of accomodation, food, equipment, ammunition, mapping, training, medical, fuel and the many other 'sinews of war' the operation could not have taken place, let alone been successful. This site hopes to provide pointers to some of that support.
