Historical Note

The amphibious invasion of Normandy beach occurred in June 1944, with the goal of seizing and establishing an Allied foothold in France to compliment the Italian front. In doing so, the combined efforts of the Soviet and Allied armies would have surrounded Germany from all sides. However, the initial invasion met with stiff resistance specifically at the American Omaha Beach landing. The casualties for the Allied armies by the end of the operation in July numbered approx. 120,000 men.
