Landing at 6.30 am, the first waves were greeted by heavy fire and pinned down on the beach. The previous night’s aerial bombardments, like the firing by the naval artillery immediately prior to the assault, turned out to have been extremely ineffectual. The German defences had remained practically untouched and raked the beach with fire, mowing down their attackers. To make matters worse, almost all the amphibious tanks sank before reaching the beach, thereby depriving the infantry of vital covering fire. As the hours went by, the situation inexorably deteriorated. As the tide rose, the beach become increasingly crowded with bodies borne in by the waves, countless wounded and the smoking carcasses of vehicles destroyed by shellfire...
And this is the story:
Wow! That's awesome! I've seen your vids on You Tube a million times! I'm also amazed that you have MOC Pages account. Is it ok if I use your design? If I post pics I will give you credit. Again thats totally AWESOME!!!
WOW! Huge, Shane has someone to compete with now! I like the curved tops of the bunkers on the beach and the design of the massive artillery bunker!(but the antitank gun needs some work) These Omaha beach D-Day scenes are ussually pretty bad, but you did a great job! =)
