An interesting question.
I think I’d rather invade Iwo Jima.
The Americans really couldn’t have lost – with their superior weaponry, artillery and total control of the waters around the pacific.
Invading Normandy would have been more difficult I think, if you managed to get off the beach, you had to tiptoe through the German infested hedgerows for months.
The 2 largest battles fought in World War 2 where many good men lost their lives. If you had to be one of those soldiers, which beach would you rather invade? Man, I would choose Normandy. The reason why is because the enemies didn’t have as many tactics as the Japanese. I do not choose the Normandy path because one is easier than the other, I choose to avoid the Japanese’s sneaky tactics. I heard they would hide underground for days.
I would rather be caught by a Nazi then a Jap. That would be my choice. What would be your choice given the history and the stats of the war that happened in both places?
