NORMANDY, France, June 6, 1944
In a surprise aggressive move, American and British troops are landing on the beaches in Normandy today. Germany’s Transocean News Service reports that Germans vacationing in the sleepy hamlets of this coastal region were awaked by the ships, planes, guns, and bombs of this sneak attack. A few brave German tourists quickly ran to bunkers and began retuning fire to protect their French brothers and sisters.
Germany has already been subject to a horrifying 363 air raids by the Allied air forces in an attempt to terrorize its citizens. British bombers have already dropped over 45,000 tons of bombs while American aircraft dropped 23,000 tons. Nearly 1.7 million people have been forced from their homes, creating what the League of Nations has called the greatest refugee problem in history. Many fleeing Germans only stopped briefly to say their goodbyes to the friends they made at the various camps throughout Germany and Poland.
