WWII Trivia : Happy B-Day Lucy

Field Marshall Rommel was in charge of the coastal defenses in France. The Germans didn't know exactly where, or exactly when, the Allies would try to invade Europe. Things looked pretty calm the first few days of June, so Rommel took the weekend off and went home to celebrate the birthday of his wife, Lucy, on June 4. He was a little late getting back to work on Monday, and without him, D-Day turned out better for us than it might have.
