II. The Normandy Beachhead

The picture of Omaha Beach in Normandy forever will remain in the memories of those who landed there. It is a picture that cannot be erased from one's memory. There was a gigantic and terrible litter of wreckage as far as the eye could see when our first elements landed only a few hours behind the first wave. Submerged tanks and overturned boats and burned trucks and shell-shattered jeeps and personal belongings were strewn over those blood-stained sands. Bodies of fallen soldiers sprawled grotesquely in the sand or half-hidden by the high grass beyond the beach.
