WW2: Omaha (I44)I Introduction
After many years of Nazi occupation the time has come after many years and months of planning to begin the liberation of Europe. The Allied task force is to make landfall across several beaches across the Normandy coastline codenamed: Omaha, Utah, Sword, Gold and Juno. D-Day is approaching and after a number of significant weather delays we have been given the green light to commence Operation Overlord.
In the early hours of June 6th Airborne forces have dropped behind German lines in order to secure key locations to enable us to establish a beachhead without the immediate fear of German counter attacks upon the fledgling beachhead.
We are members of the 2nd Ranger Battalion and are going to be making landfall upon Omaha beach within the next few hours, our beach has been bombarded by the USAF and RAF over several days so hopefully enemy defences are not too severe and we can make good headway to link up with Airborne forces beyond the beach.
Our force is the Second wave of the assault on Omaha Beach
