Finally, a field guide to this iconic and tragic beach. No one better than General Shuey could have written this work. A young officer when he served under the command of Omaha Beach veterans, including General Cota, he went on to command the famous 116th Infantry Regiment before taking command of the entire 29th Division at the end of his career. Sector by sector (with complete maps), he records the operations, relying upon the testimonies of veterans, as well as studying the battles from a military perspective, in relation to the role played by the German posts. Omaha Beach is an essential complement to Georges Bernage’s Omaha Beach.


"It is an indispensable complement to Omaha Beach by Georges Bernage, a history of the landing also published by Heimdal ...Highly recommended, if you plan on visiting the site you won’t want to be without it"
