Omaha Beach, D-Day (June 6, 1944)

  • čas přidán 20. 06. 2019
  • On June 6, 1944, the Allies launched the biggest amphibious landing operation the world has ever seen - Operation Neptune.
    In all five sectors allied troops, despite the element of surprise, sustained great casualties. However, one of them was more devastating than others.
    At Omaha beach, US soldiers had the greatest difficulties in achieving their objective.
    The price they paid on this beach, rightfully earned it the nickname …. ‘Bloody Omaha’.

    Teacher: Ok boys and girls, tomorrow we'll go for a trip to France, so we can see historical war theaters and beautiful coastal cities...
    What girls think: I hope we'll be able to sunbath on those beaches, maybe there will be cool stores and malls in the cities to go to shopping!
    What guys think: Soldiers, sailors and airmen of the Allied expeditionary force, you are about to embark upon the great crusade...

    High command seemed pretty inept. A lot of the senseless death could’ve seemingly been avoided with a bit better planning and intel. They just sorta winged it.

      Spanish Montana I wanna say yes, but at the same time they were just common soldiers. If anything, navy seals go through some crazy training. But yes, it would suck to train for a long time and just get shot the second the door opened.

    Just a quick lesson, operation neptune was the airborne landings on d day and operation overlord was the boat landings on the five beaches.

      The metal X pieces?
      They are for tearing the bottom out of boats. Under water at high tide.
      By leaving gaps, you can funnel the boats into kill zones. That is where you aim your artillery.
