People ask me how come we landed on D+1 and had an airfield completed on D+1. Good question! We landed ahead of our equipment so how did we manage to have an airfield ready on the same day? The answer is that the wehrmacht had done most of our work for us. They had removed hedgerows razed buildings and leveled the groun.d. Their aim was to open sight lines for their guns. But they unknowingly were doing us a great favor.They did the work we would have done. So getting an airfield ready on D+1 was no great achievement , But we could''nt give a DUC to the Wermacht but they did most of the work.
