During the D-day, the American soldiers where on the offensive side as they advanced towards the Omaha beach. The Americas had initiated an aerial bombing earlier which was meant to weaken the German strongholds. Soldiers were then ordered to advance to Omaha though they never expected a lot of resistance. Despite the heavy fire that the German subjected the United States soldiers were able to find cover among the bluff and used their tactical knowledge to climb over cliffs. This allowed them to infiltrate into German strong by using small groups that were difficult to hit at. The United States soldiers were therefore able to gain control over the areas after they received reinforcements.
The French were intent on spreading their revolutionary republicanism to other European states, including Britain. The British initially stayed out of the alliances of European states which unsuccessfully attacked France trying to restore the monarchy. In France a new, strong nationalism took hold enabling them to mobilise large and motivated forces. Following the execution of King Louis XVI of France in 1793, France declared war on Britain. This period of the French Revolutionary Wars was known as the War of the First Coalition . Except for a brief pause in 1802–03, the wars lasted continuously for twenty one years. During this time Britain raised several coalitions against the French, continually subsidising other European states with the Golden Cavalry of St George , enabling them to put large armies in the field. In spite of this, the French armies were very successful on land, creating several client states such as the Batavian Republic , and the British devoted much of their own forces to campaigns against the French in the Caribbean, with mixed results.
