D-Day 1944: Omaha Beach: Pt. 1: Omaha Beach

Series: Osprey Campaign S. (No. 100)
The D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest amphibious military operation ever mounted. During the late Spring and early summer of 1944 the roads and ports of southern England were thronged with the troops, vehicles and ships of the invasion force. The greatest armada the world had ever seen had been assembled to transport US 1st Army and British 2nd Army across the narrow strip of the Channel and open the long-awaited second front against Hitler's Third Reich. This book reveals the events of that single day on Utah beach, one of the two US landings.
