Adolf Hitler with Francisco Franco at the Gare d'Hendaye, Hendaye France to discuss the entrance of Spain into the War with the United Kingdom. The demands of Franco conflicted with the interests of Adolf Hitler, Spain wanting Gibraltar, regions of Africa under Vichy control, as well as supplies to sustain Spain during its hardship. Wishing to not offend the Vichy government a secret agreement was made in which Franco could enter the war when he saw fit and in return Spain would receive some French holdings in Africa. Dated October 23, 1940.

____________
Somewhere on ‘OMAHA’ beach not long after D-Day, the nearly 2,000-ton Tank Landing Ship No.532 (LST-532) of the United States Navy (USN) unloads men, equipment, and vehicles for the fight in Normandy ahead of it. Note the barrage balloons overhead nearby. This particular LST was only 5 months old at the time of invasion, and subsequently survived the war, serving on and off with the USN until 1973 when it was sold to Singapore, and a fate afterwards that remains unknown.

With ⅔ of the Wehrmacht tied up on the Eastern Front; clever Allied deception operations and control of the air; strategic surprise; Hitler’s delaying of Panzer reinforcements, and German defences on the Normandy coast woefully inadequate to stop it; Operation Overlord and the D-Day invasion had more chance of succeeding than failing. But it came at a cost. There were nearly 10,000 Allied casualties on June 6 alone; killed, wounded, and missing. On the German side, if the breaching of the much vaunted Atlantic Wall and an Allied foothold in France was causing headaches for Hitler, the events of that entire summer were going to guarantee him a serious migraine. Around the neck of the Third Reich, the hangman’s noose was tightening.|
