Omaha Beach was the location of one of the most important flashes of the fight in the Second World War II. The French and American History: In the year of 1944, US troops were given the task of safeguarding the beach as part of a strategy to land Allied soldiers along five points on the coast of Normandy, France. Due to unforeseen tidal forces and the German defenses stronger than they expected, US soldiers suffered heavy losses, 2,400 casualties, in a day of bloody fighting. However, finally, the landing was successful with 34,000 soldiers securing the area for the Allies, and therefore from the end of the war. The landing at Omaha Beach is perhaps best known these days for the film Saving Private Ryan, which opens with this battle and shows the impact of the fighting and loss of life on families back home in the USA. The American cemetery sits above Omaha Beach and is a well-kept memorial event. The bluff is the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial: The final resting place of 9,387 US forces whose graves are marked by beautiful white marble gravestones, this site is a poignant tribute to those who fought so valiantly in one of the bloodiest battles in history. You’ll see some of the most famous tombs, including the three recipients of the Medal of Honour and Theodore Roosevelt Jr. and Ollie Reed father and son and the two Nil and brothers, who served as inspiration for Saving Private Ryan.
