  1. Joe says:

    For the D-Day invasion of Europe in 1944 sixty million K rations were provided, which were intended to be enough to feed the invaders for a month. Each ration supplied 2,830 calories, which was supposed to be able to supply the soldiers with enough energy for an entire day, but that was found to be inadequate in actual combat conditions.
