"Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based on the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt it is mine alone."

After 6 June 1944, Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force commander, Dwight Eisenhower, did not have this statement distributed to the American people.


It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it. Sam Levinson

But in all seriousness the Eisenhower presidential library is exceptional. Nice collection of world war 2 small arms too.
