WWII Normandy Landings: Omaha Beach
Omaha beach was the toughest beach head breached in Operation Overlord. There where many casualties. This is for the soldiers that lost their lives to free another country.
About this creation
June 6th, 1944: Omaha was the second beach head the American troops where to take. It was 6 miles wide, and heavily defended. It was covered with mines and manned by the 352nd German Infantry Division, who where experienced and well eqipped. US 1st Army, 5th Corps where given this tough task. Almost all the senior officers of the first wave were met by lead the moment they stepped out of their higgins. The Americans had a 50% casualty rate on the first wave. eventualy the troops began to scale the cliffs with paratroopers attacking the Nazis from the rear. At the cost of 2,400 lives, the exits where secure by midday.

This soldier was one of the first out of the higgins, and one of the first to be hit with a wall of lead.

* As mentioned before, half the force that breached Omaha on the first wave and many more died not just for our country, but to free another country. The least we could do is remember and honor them.

Iíve been to Normandy and the beaches a few times (always by car) and echo the authorís feelings. My sons visited with me in 2003 when they were college students; the bravery of these young men (younger than my boys) was not lost on them. I recommend this trip for everyone, but for Americans Ė it hits the heart. http://www.historicaltravelguide.com/normandy-beach.html

Wow, pretty beast. My only recommendation for a V2 would be to add more figs, and on the hill to the left of the bunker, make it a little more steep. But still awesome.
