Today in World War II History—June 8, 1944

75 Years Ago—June 8, 1944: In Normandy, British and US forces link near Port-en-Bessin.
The US 2nd Ranger Battalion at Pointe du Hoc is relieved by forces from Omaha Beach, having held the point since climbing the cliffs on D-day.
RAF first uses the 12,000-lb “Tallboy” bomb, destroying a train tunnel in Saumur, France on the only north-south rail line in the Loire Valley, impeding German reinforcement of Normandy.
On the Adriatic coast of Italy, the British advance after finding the Germans have retreated.
This information of our history is so interesting to me.
Thank you Sarah for sharing this.
