Omaha Beach, North West of Bayeux: June 6th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Corp. Head to Head ). The US landings by the experienced 1st and green 29th Infantry divisions saw the hardest and bloodiest fighting of all the beaches on June 6. The German defenses were the strongest, and the terrain challenging in this area, resulting in a tough, bloody battle by the US forces to get off of "Bloody" Omaha. The German forces, consisting of a mix of forces from a static division and a newly arrived regular division, were stronger than the Allied intelligence indicated, but had little in the way of reserves or depth. Once the Americans could move inland from the beaches, the remaining German defenders would be forced to retreat or be cut off and destroyed in place.

Units were scattered all over the place making it almost impossible to organize the different units with parent units. Also, with not getting many favorable dice rolls, this was a huge US blood-bath.

The Allies just take a beating. Point wise is pretty difficult for them to win.
