Utah Beach 🌊 HISTORY LESSON part 3: The landing at Utah was scheduled for 6:30am. The plan for Utah included an airborne drop at various points 2-5 miles inland. The beach landers were scheduled to link up with the paratroopers as soon as they were able. The paratroopers were dropped primarily to secure the main road and to cause general chaos as they dropped in the middle of the night(1:30am) and it worked because the German troops didn't know if it was a decoy or the main attack.
While the airborne attack went fairly well(minus some casualties), the sea borne landing did not go to plan. The landing craft were taken about 2000 meters off target which fortunately happened to be one of the lesser-defended areas along the beach. American Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt(Pres. Teddy Roosevelt's son) told his men, “We’ll start the war from here!” and ordered an advance. By midday, the two different groups(air and sea) had met up, and by the end of the day the Americans had advanced about 4 miles inland. #utahbeachhistory#utahbeach#utahbeachnormandy#normandy#dday#jourj#historywithmal#historylessons#historynerd#history #🇺🇸 #🇫🇷
