The days that marked the Battle of Normandy

On the night of June 15-16, the largest number of V-1 rockets in London during the Battle of Normandy fell to London: 244 rockets. The King of England George VI comes to meet, on Friday June 16, 1944, British troops in Normandy. They are trying to continue the advance north and northwest of Caen, supported by aviation.

In the Cotentin, the American progression continues. Collins’ 7th Corps progresses eastward while the 82nd Airborne Division moves north. The 9th Infantry Division, attached to the 7th Corps, liberates Orglandes. Other divisions heading east of Cotentin, such as the 47th and 60th infantry divisions, continue their progression.
