hello everyone Paul Akers and welcome back to the American innovator are you ready for an epic journey the good friend David long invited me and my wife to go along with him to Europe to trace the steps of the 101 Airborne Division Band of Brothers as they push back the Nazis on d-day now this is going to be an epic journey I'm gonna try to do a video for every day we're in the region and we're gonna learn so much about what happened on that day June 6 1944 when
00:29
the Allied forces with 13 nations came ashore to push back the Nazi invasion of France and Europe now this was really a crazy experience because I been to Normandy before but never before on an organized tour that was specifically geared towards historical events that took place in this region and we saw all kinds of amazing things we started off in the British and Canadian sector which was Juno Beach and sword Beach and I was able to take the drone along with me and
01:01
get incredible shots of these armament positions that the Nazis had built in now one of the things that I found was so interesting is the Germans were very systematic and standardized everything including how they built all these positions there was only one thing they didn't standardize and that was the weapons himself they had almost 40 different kinds of weapons and that posed a problem in terms of them servicing heavy munitions for everything and that was probably a weak link but we went along this region and we saw how
01:32
the war played out the weather played into everything and how they built these amazing harbors the Allies designed and strategically and built these harbors that were temporary so they can put all the supplies ashore on all these villages and towns in the Normandy coastline and you can see the harbor right here they built it was really spectacular the harbors were named Mulberry a in Mulberry B Mulberry a was destroyed just shortly a few days after they built it by a storm that
02:02
lasted three days they abandoned mulberry a she was mulberry beeping in troops and supplies aboard now the entire operation was controlled by Eisenhower supreme commander and 13 nations participated he was critical than all 13 participated in order for them to have success they had it was truly a joint effort of the biggest magnitude ever seen and to put it in perspective a hundred and fifty six thousand men came ashore that day in
02:33
just 24 hours to recapture the French coastline and then push inward to push the Nazis back why is such a huge effort because this was the only bite of the Apple that the Allies would ever get they felt like now was the time if they didn't strike and create a land hold on the European coastline then it would be very difficult to ever defeat Hitler 70 miles of coastline five beaches Utah Omaha gold Juno and sword Beach what is
03:08
your need and you were here on thank you thank you for your service then we went north to Juno Beach where the Canadians came ashore the Canadians took some pretty heavy casualties but when they went inland and they met the Panzer Division that's where the fighting really became cuter they went underneath some of the bunker cool he saw where the Germans were entrenched in and everything they did to keep the Allies from coming ashore and check this out it's a hand grenade into a German bunker
03:43
it was right back out there yet the Germans were definitely ready for an invasion all the bunkers were heavily reinforced six foot thick walls ventilation systems wood stoves sleeping cots everything was prepared including emergency exits next we went down to the beach where we saw the invasion actually take place and was just hard to believe what these mannequin doors that tide was way out when they came ashore and they had to come 300 meters inland across the
04:16
muck of the beach and being under fire the entire time the end of the day went to the pegasus bridge this is where gliders came in and landed within just a few meters of their target to overtake these bridges as strategic points it was absolutely incredible what the Allies accomplished and look at these colliders filled with up to 29 X we had a passionate talk and a lecture from this woman who really wanted us to understand the history of what happened I mean incredible sacrifice that all these
04:47
individuals gave for art freedom this is only day one and I'm left humbled and an awe of what I experienced you
