    The Germans had as additional troops the Vichy French,and small contingents of troops from other occupied countries .

    On the side of the Allies, there were many countries involved with their troops in the D-Day invasion:In addition to the Americans and the British (which included troops from all over the British Empire,)

    there were units from Allied contingents (French, Polish, Czech, Dutch, and Norwegian) as well as Canadian and other Commonwealth squadrons.

    That American, British, Canadian, and French troops took part in the Normandy invasion is generally known. But that there were Australian personnel involved is less widely known - as their participation is never mentioned outside of the Antipodes. Nevertheless, there were nearly 20,0000 Aussies serving in Britain at the time of the landings, and many of them had a direct role in the invasion.

    The United States, England and Canada were the invasion force. Germany was on the receiving end and we had some help with the French resistance.
