I always loved how in his books you could go from something really profound to something like “hump the moist cave wall” so I made a side-by-side of some of my favourites.

that’s because he wrote teenaged characters and he did it well. Sometimes we like to think we’re invincible and say fancy shit and sometimes it’s “hump the moist cave wall”

By now, most of you will have been notified by the school you plan on attending, and many will have sent you a mini checklist of what to bring with you. They’re usually good on basic essentials, but a downside is that it is easy to forget other things you might need. 

(Some of these items on the list may not be necessary, depending on what your school provides for you and your environment. So check with your school and also narrow this checklist down to YOUR needs. Also remember, you may be sharing your dorm room with someone else—space is limited even if you choose to live in a single!)

D-Day, 6th June 1944. 70th Anniversary.

" The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, were the landing operations on 6 June 1944 (termed D-Day) of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the Allied invasion of German-occupied western Europe, led to the restoration of the French Republic, and contributed to an Allied victory in the war.

Planning for the operation began in 1943. In the months leading up to the invasion, the Allies conducted a substantial military deception, codenamed Operation Bodyguard, to mislead the Germans as to the date and location of the main Allied landings. The weather on D-Day was far from ideal, but postponing would have meant a delay of at least two weeks, as the invasion planners set conditions regarding the phase of the moon, the tides, and the time of day that meant only a few days in each month were deemed suitable. Hitler placed German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in command of German forces and of developing fortifications along the Atlantic Wall in anticipation of an Allied invasion.

The amphibious landings were preceded by extensive aerial and naval bombardment and an airborne assault—the landing of 24,000 British, US, and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight. Allied infantry and armoured divisions began landing on the coast of France starting at 06:30. The target 50-mile (80 km) stretch of the Normandy coast was divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword Beach. Strong winds blew the landing craft east of their intended positions, particularly at Utah and Omaha. The men landed under heavy fire from gun emplacements overlooking the beaches, and the shore was mined and covered with obstacles such as wooden stakes, metal tripods, and barbed wire, making the work of the beach clearing teams difficult and dangerous. Casualties were heaviest at Omaha, with its high cliffs. At Gold, Juno, and Sword, several fortified towns were cleared in house-to-house fighting, and two major gun emplacements at Gold were disabled using specialised tanks.

The Allies failed to achieve all of their goals on the first day. Carentan, St. Lô, and Bayeux remained in German hands, and Caen, a major objective, was not captured until 21 July. Only two of the beaches (Juno and Gold) were linked on the first day, and all five bridgeheads were not connected until 12 June. However, the operation gained a foothold that the Allies gradually expanded over the coming months. German casualties on D-Day were around 1,000 men. Allied casualties were at least 12,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead….” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normandy_landings


" Operation Overlord
Operation Overlord, the Allied codename for the invasion of Normandy, involved more than 150,000 men and 5,000 ships.  It consisted of American, British, Canadian, Polish, and Free French Armies under command of General Eisenhower, the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force (the choice of Eisenhower was officially made by President Roosevelt in December 1943, and agreed upon by the British).

The Deputy Supreme Commander of the invasion was British Air Chief Marshal Arthur W. Tedder, who had been the commander of the Allied Air Forces in the Mediterranean.  While British Admiral Bertram H. Ramsay, was appointed naval commander.  He had conducted the evacuation at Dunkirk and also planned the Torch landing in North Africa.  British Air Chief Marshal Trafford L. Leigh-Mallory was appointed as commander of the air forces.

Montgomery was chosen as the ground forces’ commander, despite his well-known personality problems.  Eisenhower’s first choice was in fact General Harold Alexander, but Churchill needed Alexander to remain in Italy.  Montgomery arrived in Britain in January 1944 and began to evaluate the feasibility of the operation.  He proposed the expansion of the invasion area to include landings west of the Vire River - allowing for the encirclement of Cherbourg (this would later become Utah Beach).

The Deception - Operation Fortitude
Elaborate efforts were taken in order to deceive the Germans into thinking that a massive Allied force was concentrated in Kent - just opposite Pas de Calais.  Command of the fake army (known as the US 1st Army Group) was given to General George S. Patton in order to lend validity to the Army Group.  Radio traffic was faked, plywood and canvas installations were constructed, inflatable tanks and vehicles were used extensively in order to deceive the Germans.  In all, the plan called Operation Fortitude, was considered a great success in keeping the German High Command guessing about where the real invasion would come from.  It would be instrumental in causing the Germans to withhold units once D-Day began.  On a side note, Patton would later take command of the US Third Army in Normandy after the landings and during the breakout phase of the campaign.

The Landings - Preparations
Eisenhower decided that the Airborne units would go in first the night before the invasion under a full moon.  The amphibious landings needed to land early in the morning after 40 minutes of heavy daylight bombardment.  Due to the numerous beach obstacles, the landings also needed to take place at low tide but at the beginning of the rise of the tide.  This allowed for most of the obstacles to be visible and thus be avoided, but caused the landing craft to debark their troops much further from shore.  Unfortunately, all these conditions were only met between the 5th and 7th of June.  Preparations began on the 2nd of June, but a powerful storm arrived on the 4th of June, causing a 24-hour postponement.  Later on the 4th, a break in the weather was forecasted for the 6th - at which time Eisenhower gave the go ahead for the invasion.

In addition, the amphibious units needed to land at dawn in order to give the maximum protection during night and then allow for 16 hours of daylight once the invasion began.  Also, the surprise of morning operations cannot be underestimated as many units were not yet ready for the invasion that early. 

The Allied landings consisted of 5 major areas of beach operations in addition to 3 airborne drop zones (parachute and glider).  The U.S. forces were concentrated on the western landings, while the British and Canadians were concentrated in the central and eastern landings.  The U.S. Airborne divisions (82nd and 101st) were to secure inland objectives approximately 5 miles inland opposite the Utah landings, while the 6th British Airborne division would form the most eastern extent of the invasion by securing the bridges over the Orne river….” http://www.militaryhistoryonline.com/wwii/dday/
