Charging into a blizzard of unyielding machine-gun and mortar fire, elements of the 29th Infantry Division lead the assault on Omaha Beach, June 6th, 1944. The scene at the water’s edge is one of chaos and bloody carnage as the heavily laden troops begin the 200 yard rush across the bullet-swept sands of what would later be known as “Bloody Omaha.”
The 29th Infantry Division suffered massive casualties during their assault on Omaha Beach, so to acquire an edition that is personally signed by veterans that fought in the first wave, is truly remarkable.
