The landing on Omaha Beach begins. Caught under heavy fire from defenders set up overlooking the beach, the first wave of assault troops is decimated. This area of the coast, held by the 352nd German Infantry Division is particularly well-defended and the GIs are facing men who are well-trained and well-equipped. After several hours of intense fighting, two breaches are finally opened at Omaha.
- Men land on the Easy Red sector
- Gl crammed into an assault barge
- Fighting on the beach
- Gl wounded at the foot of the cliff
- Shipwrecked soldier shot on the beach.
