D-Day the landing beaches and the Battle of Normandy….Did you know?

Did you know?

A few days after the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941,
Nazi Germany led by Adolf Hilter, believing that the United States could not get back up from such a devasting attack,
decided to declare war on the USA…

To give you an idea of American production rate, B-24 bombers were being produced every 63 minutes at its peak (March 1944), a rate so large that production exceeded the military’s ability to use the aircraft. Such were the production numbers it’s been said that more aluminium, aircrew and effort went into the B-24 than any other aircraft in history !!!
