Copy of  D-Day

São Vicente, in the coast of São Paulo, was the first city founded in Brazil, on January 1532.On 1554, jesuits on a mission to convert the indians walked up the Serra do Mar and founded a college, which would become the city of São Paulo. The jesuits were followed by another group which also had intereste on indians: the bandeirantes, who chased indians to be enslaved in the cane plantations.

D-Day was also known as Operation Overlord, and US General Dwight Eisenhower's purpose was to gain a foothold in France, push the Germans out of Western Europe, and help the Soviet Union. Shortly after midnight, Allied Airborne troops dropped behind the Atlantic Wall. Early that morning, naval guns started bombarded the Atlantic Wall. Some of the bombing was ineffective, such as that at Omaha beach. Troops started landing at 6:30 AM to fight at Utah and Omaha. Around 4:00 PM, German troops launched a counterattack, but they were eventually stopped. By nightfall, US, British, Canadian, and Free French troops were establishing a foothold in France. Allied troops had to continue fighting in the hedgerows in France, but the end of WWII was in sight because of the attack at Normandy.
