Omaha Beach

On the eastern coast of the Cherbourg peninsula in Normandy is the location of the Easternmost of the D-Day landing beaches of 6 June 1944.  It was the second of the two beaches allocated to US forces for the landings, and in direct contrast to Omaha, Juno had the least number of casualties of any of the landing beaches whereas Omaha had by far the most.
