Omaha Beach is the codename for an area of the Normandy Beach for Operation Overlord landing that took place on June the 6th, 1944; known as D-day or Day of Days. Here began the Normandy Campaign. 

The U.S. 1st and 29th Infantry Divisions, Army Rangers, and Navy Beach Battalions landed on this site. The Allied Supreme Command predicted this would be the hardest beach to capture, due to the amount of obstacles, and German positions. It was the beach where the most Americans landed on.

In the movie, The US Army Rangers, Navy Beach Battalions, and 29th Infantry were on the Dog Green sector. It first starts out with Captain John H. Miller, commander of Charlie Company, 2nd Ranger Battalion, landing in an LCM on the beach.

This shattering scene recreates what it was like for American soldiers who landed at Omaha Beach on the 6th of June, 1944. Music Soundtrack: 1) Approaching The Enemy (0:24); and 2) Hymn To The Fallen (5:01).
