WWII Normandy Landings: Utah Beach
0630, 6-6-44: The first seaborne troops of the 2nd Battalion, 8th infantry landed on Utah beach in 20 higgins boats. This 3 hour battle changed the course of the War.
About this creation
Along with the first wave came the DD amphibious tanks. In the second wave was 32 more Higgins, and the third wave consisted of 8 LCTs carrying bulldozer tanks and Shermans.

Very nice build! I like how it slightly slopes up, and the fire. you only put a couple, most people put fire EVERYWHERE. I like how it's nice and spread out. Cool weapons. 5 stars!
