Morgan, General Sir Frederick, 1894-1967

Morgan was the chief planner of the Allied invasion of Normandy. In January 1943 he was appointed Chief of Staff to a Supreme Allied Commander who was not yet appointed, and was ordered to produce a detailed plan for an invasion of Europe. Morgan was not given sufficient resources, especially landing craft, and could not get any until EISENHOWER was appointed Supreme Allied Commander. Morgan’s final plan was adopted at a conference in June-July 1943 and for the next year, until D-Day 4 June 1944, the plans for Operation Overlord were worked out in great detail under Morgan.
