In the invasion of Normandy, I recall reading that many soldiers became seasick from overdosing on a new drug called Dramamine, a motion sickness remedy, but recently a documentary claimed it was because the USN decided to serve the troops a very large and greasy breakfast that fateful morning.
Does anyone know which it was, or was it a combination of both?
And yes, I realize the seas were heavy, even during a lull in the June storm.
