D-Day was a triumph, but Canadians had paid for their success in blood. By the night ofJune 8, the three British and Canadian beaches had linked up with Utah to the east. The invasion was, all told, a major Allied success. The British and Canadians had landed more than 75,000 troops and the Americans about 57,500 from the sea, and an additional 23,400 paratroops from the air. The Allies had put almost 6,000 vehicles ashore, including 900 tanks and armoured vehicles, and some 600 guns. And they had landed 4,000 tons of supplies.
On Gold Beach, the 50th British Division got ashore without too many problems, although German strongpoints caused casualties. Nonetheless, by nightfall Juno and Gold had linked up. On Sword the British 3rd Division, a veteran regular army formation, had landed readily enough, but the division failed to capture the Norman city of Caen, its D-Day objective, and had to fend off a weak German panzer counter-attack in the late afternoon. Still, Sword Beach was secure and the troops were well inland.
