Dwight D. Eisenhower's 1944 Apology Letter On The Failed D-Day Invasion Of Europe

It reads: "Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the navy did all that bravery and devotion to duly could do. If any blame or fault is attached to the attempt it is mine alone."

My Comment: A letter that (fortunately) was never needed.
