Marines were wounded during the landing on Tarawa. They were towed out on rubber boats by their buddies to larger vessels that will take them to base hospitals for better medical care.
Allied soldiers, tanks and ships took part in the D-Day landings at Arromanches beach in Normandy, Northern France. The United States shipped over 17 million tons of cargo to the United Kingdom. The cargo was filled with 800,000 pints of blood plasma, 125 million maps, prefabricated harbors (known as Mulberries), a replacement rail network, cigarettes, and toothbrushes.
This Helmet was from the District of Harburg. Harburg was a preferred target of allied bombing raids in the years 1943 to 1945 because of its industrial installations.
The Battle of Monte Cassino was fought January 17 to May 18, 1944, during World War II (1939-1945). The British Army Engineers used a bulldozer to clear debris from the streets. Monte Cassino was destroyed during the second world war because of a mistake by a British junior officer.
