On June 6, 1944, Americans from the 1st Infantry Division and the 29th Infantry Division made an infantry beach assault on a stretch of Normandy coastline code-named Omaha beach. It was at Omaha that most things that could go wrong for the Americans, did indeed go wrong. Bombing in naval gunfire had done little to neutralize the teeth of the enemy's defenses. High seas resulted in tank support failing to reach the beach. The infantryman of the 16th infantry Regiment and 116th took the heaviest casualties of the day. On this week’s episode we will take you to “Bloody Omaha“ and show you not only where men like Harold Baumgartner came ashore, but also take you into the teeth of the German defenses. Watch a video preview of tonight's episode here.
