Quote:
The young American soldiers who landed on Omaha Beach had the worst of it.

For several reasons:
1. The air attack that was to crater the beach and disrupt the obstacles missed
2. The swimming tanks (Sherman DD's) were launched to far away from the beach and got swamped. Gold and others released them closer to the shore.
3. The Beach head was not vital, I think, I will have to check that it was to prevent an Armoured division that didn't exist getting to the side and rear of other beaches.
To quote "Yay, what has come to pass, may never be forgotten, else it shall happen again!"
