comment How many Axis troops fought on D-Day?
Question has not been updated; still looks trivial. Please update the question with the relevant information from the comments and explain why this question isn't answered on wikipedia. I accept that it isn't answered there, but the question as it stands is a "bring me a rock" question.

comment How long did it take to repair wooden war ships after battle in the 1600's to 1800's?
If you're asking about 200 years, all countries, all types of damage, and all types of warship, then the answer is a confident "It depends". Imagine you were asking about infantry rather than warships. Some soliders walk away without damage. Others get their head blown off by a cannon (much more likely in 1800 than 1600). Perhaps you could ask about the most common types of battle damage, and the most common repairs? Then we could talk about the role of the ship's carpenter, repairs at sea, and drydock.
