D-day was the largest seaborne invasion in world history and was a pivotal moment in WWII.
On the morning of June 6, 1944, nearly 160,000 allied soldiers crossed the English Channel and stormed five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of Normandy, France. The United States led the charge to try to retake the western coast of Europe from the Germans, who had conquered and been occupying it for four years.
In the months and weeks leading up to the invasion, the allies used a variety of means to deceive the Germans, who knew an attack was coming, but didn’t know where it would be focused.
After postponing the invasion by a day because of bad weather, the Supreme Commander of the Allied forces, American General Dwight D. Eisenhower, gave the go-ahead for the operation, codenamed Neptune.
Shortly after midnight, 24,000 British, US, and Canadian airborne troops parachuted into France. Around the same time, minesweepers began clearing channels for the invasion fleet, which was comprised of almost 7,000 boats of all types–although around 4,100 of these were landing crafts carrying infantrymen. The Germans, by contrast, had just over 100 total ships in the area at the time and were heavily outnumbered. The same was true for the German Air Force, which could muster only 815 aircraft over Normandy in comparison to the Allies’ 9,500.
Naval bombardment of the beaches commenced at 05:45 AM, while it was still dark. Allied infantry and armored divisions began landing on the coast of France starting at 06:30. The men landed under heavy fire from emplacements overlooking the beaches. The shore was mined and covered with wooden stakes, metal tripods, and barbed wire obstacles, 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 towns were cleared in house-to-house fighting.
The Allies did not achieve all of their goals on D-Day. Only Juno and Gold beach were linked in the first 24 hours, and all five bridgeheads were not connected until nearly a week had passed. However, the operation was successful as the Allies gained a precious foothold that gradually expanded as they drove into Germany from the west 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 KIA.
With Russia bearing down from the east, the European side of World War II ended with the surrender of Germany less than a year after the Normandy operation. Once Japan surrendered in September 1945, the largest conflict in human history was over. It had taken the lives of anywhere from 50 to 85 million people.
The outcome of the war has been critical in shaping the geopolitical landscape of the last 70 years. The victorious great powers—the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France, and what is now the Russian Federation—became the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

There is new information about the discovery of a 310-year-old Spanish shipwreck, carrying treasure that might be worth up to $17 billion. The ship was found with the help of an underwater robot, an unmanned submarine similar to this one. Don Dahler reports.

In south east Asia a monkey eating eagle rules the skies. While their size is impressive their numbers are not. On this episode we’ll take a look at the world’s largest eagle.
The Philippine Eagle, being the world’s largest, is not only iconic for it’s size but it’s look.
Sporting a full head of hair, white belly and dark brown wings, this is the last eagle you want to have circling you when you’re walking your dog.
These massive eagles have a 6.5 foot or 2 meter wingspan and stand 3 feet or 1 meter tall. They weigh in at 16.5 pounds or 7.5 kgs but I should note these numbers are for the females who are larger than the males. Despite their extraordinary size, the Philippine Eagle has evolved to be able to fly out of dense jungle almost vertically with their broad wings and squared off tail.
These birds of prey eat small animals most commonly a diet consisting of flying lemurs, snakes, palm civets, macaque monkeys, lizards, bats and cloud rats. With a 7 inch spread of talons, this eagle once locked onto a target doesn’t give it much hope of surviving. The Philippine Eagle can carry prey 4x it’s own body weight. There’s no wonder how this eagle acquired the nickname as the monkey eating eagle. Believe it or not this eagle will occasionally attack pigs, young goats and dogs as well.
This majestic species of eagle is critically endangered with there believed to be less than 200 left in the wild. The eagle’s low reproduction rate of laying just 1 or 2 eggs a year isn’t helping the problem. They require tall trees that tower over the jungle canopy to reproduce which are often the first target of forestry loggers in the Philippines.
The initial decline of the Philippine eagle happened after World War I when firearms became common. This bird was a high in demand prized bird to be put on display.
Being at the top of the food chain isn’t always the safest as much higher doses of toxins, such as pesticides build up in the body. This eagle along with the Bald Eagle and Peregrine falcon have had their numbers devastated by these environmental pollutants.
Once flourishing on most Philippine islands, the Philippine Eagle has been extirpated from many islands. This removal of the bird changes the ecosystem with one of the top predators missing, the eagle only survives on a few islands today.
A breeding program in Davao City currently houses 36 Philippine Eagles, 18 of which were bred in captivity. Over the 23 years Philippines Eagles have been bred only an additional 26 eagles have come from breeders efforts. 15 of the eagles have been released back into the wild with a few found and brought back to the facility injured, some found dead and only 1 known to be surviving on it’s own. The eagles are now be loaned out for other countries to breed them just as backup in case natural disaster or disease goes through the Philippines.
What are you thoughts on critically endangered animals being bred in captivity to keep the species alive? Do you think this species is doomed, let us know in the comments down below.

The Republic of Cuba is an island country in the Caribbean. It consists of the island of Cuba, the Isla de la Juventud, and several archipelagos. Havana is the largest city in Cuba and the country’s capital. Santiago de Cuba is the second largest city.
Cuba is home to over 11 million people and is the most populous insular nation in the Caribbean. Its people, culture, and customs draw from diverse sources, including the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples; the period of Spanish colonialism; the introduction of African slaves; and its proximity to the United States.
