Exercise Fabius

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Exercise Fabius was a formal exercise for the Allied Operation Neptune in World War II.[1] (The other was Exercise Tiger, which had occurred a week earlier.)[2]

The exercise was planned to start on 2 May 1944, but bad weather delayed it to the next day.[1]

It consisted of six separate exercises:[1]

They formed the largest amphibious training exercise of the war.[1] As the final exercise before Operation Neptune, it resembled closely the final operation and no major changes could be made to Operation Neptune.[1][3]
