Hardcover edition. An exceptional copy. 1999 Hard Cover. 192 pp. Saving Private Ryan has brought home to a new generation just how harrowing the landing at Omaha Beach was on D-Day. Located in between the other American objective of Utah Beach and the British and Canadian beaches Sword, Gold and Juno, failure to secure Omaha Beach would have resulted in the failure of the entire invasion. Operational oversights and the fortunes of war left a larger number of German defenses intact on this crucial beach, making for the most difficult of all the battles on June 6, 1944. Americans on Omaha Beach sustained about 60% of all casualties on D-Day. All of the units, events and personalities of the Omaha landing are covered in full detail, backed up with numerous photographs, maps, suggestions for further reading and a guide to touring the battlefield sites as they are today.
