CRUSADE IN EUROPE: WORLD WAR II   

“You are about to embark on a great crusade” as stated by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to his troops as they entered their landing craft and aircraft on D-Day. But what did it take to return to Europe? And what were the conflicts required in the next eleven months to win the victory? Europe took priority over the other operating areas in the war. Why was it first for men and material? We will look at Eisenhower’s own words from his book Crusade in Europe to see what his thoughts were at the time. We will look at the politics, the strategy, the tactics, and the military leaders on both sides of the conflict as the Allies drove to Germany. We will end the class with a look at the aftermath and the cost to Europe after six years of war, as well as with a look at the Nuremberg Trials.
