By: Harrison

Operation Fortitude was an operation by the Allied Forces to trick the Germans into thinking they were going to invade at Port Calais in France because it was the nearest land to Great Briatan. The Germans knew we were going to have a land invasion somewhere in France. We tricked the Germans by sending fake radio signals. Before the D-Day invasion, Great Britan sent in tin foil called "Moonshine" that messed with the radar making them think that there were hundreds of soldiers on boats coming to shore. Right before D-Day, we sent fake soldiers, jeeps, and tanks made of rubber. To make them more beliveable, we gave the soldiers fake guns and soundboxes that made screams, explosions, and gunfire. By sending the fake soldiers, the Germans thought that we were coming from Port Calais so we got them by suprise when the actual D-Day began on June 6, 1944.
