Remembering D-Day 70 Years Later-- Part 3: Jeopardy

**  The last time an invading army crossed the English Channel before D-Day. 1688

**  Nickname for the million-plus wooden poles planted by the Germans to thwart an invasion. Rommel's Asparagus

**  Code name of the plan to deceive the Germans about where the invasion was to take place.  Operation Fortitude

**  Candy in emergency rations for paratroopers.  Four Hershey bars and one pack of charms  (Not sure what charms candy was.)

And, landing on Those Beaches Which the Germans Had Had Four Years to Prepare Was Certainly Big-Time Jeopardy.  --GreGen
