Preamble -------- On the morning of June 6, 1944, the largest naval task force ever assembled opened fire and began the assault on Hitler's fortress Europe. The Allied forces consisting of British, American, and Canadian troops landed at various beaches in Normandy, France codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Sword, and Juno. It was at Omaha Beach, however, that American troops met with the fiercest fighting. The first wave of American soldiers to go ashore at Omaha Beach, consisting of the 29th and 1st Infantry Division, was met by heavy gun and mortar fire. Throughout the landing, German gunners of the 352nd Infantry Division poured deadly fire into the ranks of the invading Americans. Bodies lay on the beach or floated in the water. Men sought refuge behind beach obstacles, pondering the deadly sprint across the beach to the seawall, which offered some safety at the base of the cliff. Destroyed craft and vehicles littered the water's edge and beach. Slowly, and in small groups, the Americans scaled the cliffs. Meanwhile, Navy destroyers steamed in and blasted the German fortifications at point-blank range. One by one, access points were opened for the Allies. By the time it was all over at Omaha, the Americans had suffered 2,400 casualties but they had landed 34,000 troops while the German 352nd Division lost 20 percent of its strength, suffering 1,200 casualties. ====================================== Textures included in this Texture set. ====================================== --==Killah==--'s "Blue and Gray" 29th Infantry Division Uniform Reskin.
