Source rationale: This source is a chart that shows the death toll of the Nations involved in D-Day.  A lot of people knew that D-Day was a very deadly attack but not many people know just how many people died there. The chart breaks it into deaths by country. Germany was at the top of the chart with 320,000 deaths, followed by the United States with 135,000, then United Kingdom, Canada, and France where the last three all with less then 65,000. This chart gives us a disturbing reminder of how deadly Operation Overlord really was.  This source fits in with our other source because it shows the aftermath of D-Day.  This source goes along with our thesis.  We found this source using the Encyclopedia Britannica.
