To read this one page article from YANK MAGAZINE is to acquire a sense of the Herculean task that was involved in the transporting of so many men and supplies across the English Channel to breach Rommel's Atlantic Wall:

"When the port-battalion men were ordered to fall out in the compound that morning, 'Bulldozer' knew that the show had started. He had played professional baseball, and it felt like the ninth inning...The biggest job of coordination that the world has ever known was under way. Thousands of things had to happen at a certain time, things which, if they did not happen, would delay the entire movement. Every depot had to be emptied of ammunition, supplies, food, petrol, and men - funneled through ships to give preponderance in fire power and man power to smother resistance on the other side."
