USS LCI - Landing Troops on Omaha Beach

USS LCI - Landing Troops on Omaha Beach Visual Arts Famous Historical Events World War II

This view of troops landing at Omaha Beach gives an idea of the sort of terrain they would have to deal with.

The Naval History & Heritage Command tells us more about this scene:

Troops land from USS LCI(L)-412 during the "D-Day" assault on "Omaha" Beach, 6 June 1944.

Note "half-track" weapons carriers at the water's edge, with their guns pointing inland; troops dug in on the shore; and LCI(L)-412's bow 20mm gunner engaging enemy targets.
