Omaha and Gold Beaches, the beginning of the D-Day

On that Day the beaches were filled with brave soldiers, trying to reach safe land, at all cost. Many lives were lost and one of the most important page in history was wrote, it was the beginning of the end of the Nazi’s troops and Adolf Hitler.

With the code name Omaha beach, the Allies(US troops) main objective was trying to capture the beachhead for 8km (5 miles) in depth between Port-en-Bessin and the Vire River. But very little occurred has allies had planned, the defenses were unexpectedly much strong, inflicting many casualties. 

Gold Beach was the disembark point for the Allies (British troops) to establish a occupied zone between Arromanches and Ver-sur-Mer. Later expanding to Bayeux and cutting the road to Caen.
