Description

D-Day at Omaha Beach is a solitaire game simulating the twelve momentous hours on 6 June 1944, when US amphibious forces assaulted a stretch of sand held by German forces on the Calvados coast of France—a shore that would ever after be known by its code name: Omaha Beach. Of the five beaches assaulted by the Allies on D-Day, Omaha was the bloodiest and the hardest-won. For several hours on that June day, the fate of the invasion hung in the balance. Ultimately, despite the failure of the Allied invasion plan, the heroism and initiative of the US soldier prevailed and a viable beachhead was established.

D-Day at Omaha Beach also provides an engaging cooperative simulation for two players. Each player directs the units of one US division: The 1st Division landing on the eastern half of the beach and the 29 th Division assaulting the western half.

  • One 34" x 22" mounted board
