Artist's Description

On June 6th, 1944, the Allies stormed five beaches of Normandy, France
in one of the pivotal battles of World War II and the largest sea-borne
invasion in world history. The five beaches invaded ( Sword, Juno, Gold,
Omaha, and Utah Beach) were all heavily fortified by the Germans and were all
extremely difficult to attack, causing the Allies many casualties. In total,
the Allies gathered 2,700 ships and 186,000 soldiers for the assault on the
beaches, as paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to capture German bridges
and railroad tracks. The Allies crossed the English Channel and arrived at
the dreaded Normandy Beaches at the break of dawn. The American, English,
and Canadian troops stormed ashore on a sixty-mile front, taking the Germans
by surprise. By the end of the day, the Allies had the beaches secured.
If the Allies could have avoided invading Omaha Beach, they would have.
However, it had to be done. It was probably the most heavily defended and
was the largest beach out of the five attacked, but it had to be seized
because the gap between Utah and Omaha Beach would have been too wide to hold
if Omaha wasn’t captured
