Omaha Beach

Calvados view map

American cemetery of Colleville sur Mer.
Just over Omaha beach where the US troops suffered their highest losses on D-Day.
The land is now an American territory and some 9 000 soldiers killed on the beaches or in Normandy are buried.
The names of some 1 500 other men missing in action are also visible on a memorial.

Cimetière américain de Colleville sur Mer
Surplombant Omaha Beach où les troupes US subirent leurs plus lourdes pertes le jour du Débarquement.
Le domaine est désormais un territoire américain et plus de 9 000 soldats tués le 6 juin ou pendant la Bataille de Normandie y sont enterrés.
Les noms de 1 500 autres hommes disparus, sont gravés sur un mémorial.

Very moving photograph. I visited Colleville sur Mer several years ago. It was very early in the morning, and I was the only one there. As an American, albeit born two years after the end of WWII, this was perhaps the most moving experience I had at that visit to France.

Thanks for sharing this image.
