This is a photo taken from a photo archive and was used to create the cover of Teddy’s War. It shows Omaha Beach, three days after D-Day. It is a typical scene that would be repeated for several months: ships grounded on the sand after the tide went out, unloading men, machines, and materials to feed the Allied forces in Normandy.
Another view of Omaha Beach in October, 2019.
This is Omaha Beach in October, 2019. The tide was out and a couple of hundred yards of sand exposed.
On the bluffs above Omaha Beach is the American Military Cemetery. About 10,000 graves that surround a large memorial. A ceremony is held twice a day for raising and lowering the flags that fly over the cemetery.
Taken from the bluffs of the cemetery, this is Omaha Beach to the north.
