One would expect the leader of a nation in the midst of war to be alert and ready to go at any time, Adolf Hitler was not this kind of leader. While the D-Day invasion was taking place Hitler was asleep and his advisors were too scared to wake him up due to his cruelty. Hitler’s reaction to invasion when he woke only painted a worse picture, at 10 am when he finally woke up he was glad the allies invaded and declared it was going to be an easy victory. History tells us a very different story of Operation Overlord.
