The Germans had to be fooled into thinking that the invasion would happen near Calais, NOT Normandy.
How did the Allies do this?

  2. The area around Calais was bombed more heavily than elsewhere
  3. Fake planes, tanks and landing craft were built
  4. German reconnaissance planes were only ‘allowed’ to fly over Kent, and see fake oil dock
