U.s marines stormed Omaha beach in 1944. It proved a tough nut to crack, due to the fact that the beach was sourrounded by high cliffs, and was the most well defended. The U.S. forces captured the beach, but sustained over 3,000 casualties as a result. Hope you like it!! Please rate and comment.
About this creation

U.S. marines wade ashore, under heavy fire. A Navy medic puts a man out of his misery, after the man had his leg blown off. He's lost so much blood, he's turned white.

Excellent work although U.S. Marines were stationed in the pacific theater ONLY so they couldn't of been there but the U.S. army and rangers were in the beach landing the navy too they had driven the landing boats but Fantastic job :D!
A great tribute to "Bloody Omaha"! Loved the landscaping and bunkers. Only problems: needs more BrickArms, and you need a more consistent soldier design. But still, my overall rating on the creation is Very Good! Thank you for making one of the only good D-Day creations!
Also, for an idea for a US soldier, check out my "WWII US Infantryman".
Not bad at all. I would say the ground needs a bit of work, maybe adding some details here and there; especially as regards the trenches. (you have a row of tan bricks which could use some sprucing up). I like how you've textured the water, too. Very nice build overall.
Excellent build! The flak cannon and pillboxes are especially good!

Hmm, did I just saw PP there? Well, to be honest, I absolutely donīt care if this is accurate or not, this is one amazing MOC. Keep bringing such awesome work.

I hope you know that that is inaccurate. First, the U.S. ARMY took Omah, not the Marines, and the U.S. never used PPsh41`s. The flack and Germans would be after the U.S. took the beach. And there were no waterfalls.
Thanks you guys!!! My friend Ronan didn't want me to say this, but I think he deserves it!! He built the Flak gun. I built everything else. He didn't want me to site his name, for some strange reason, and he doesn't have any creations on his home page, but please give him credit for the flak 38!! Thanks everyone!! RORY
