Fun Facts:

• WWII was the largest and most expensive war ever and so was the aftermath as most cities had lost major industry and been turned to rubble by aggressive bombings 

• The Higgins boats, or Landing Craft Vehicles, were amphibious boats that made the landing on the shores of Normandy possible at D-Day. These boats were made in New Orleans by shipbuilder Andrew Higgings.

• There were 291,557 American casualties in total after the war finished
