On 6 June 1944, after months of anticipation, rumour, impatience and discussion, the Allied invasion of Europe began. British, Canadian and American forces landed on the beaches of the Normandy coast of France. Apart from great superiority of numbers, the Allied attack also had the advantage of surprise: the German Commander-in-Chief West, Field Marshal Rundstedt, firmly believed that the landing would be made in the region of Calais, and, although Field Marshal Rommel was convinced that Normandy was the goal of the invading army, Hitler distributed the German forces equally on the east and west sides of the Seine.
