Reanalyzing military records and battle plans of the Normandy invasion, Lewis traces the evolution of combined operations (more than one nation) and joint operations (more than one service), as well as tactical doctrines from the inter-war period to 1944 to explain how the plan for swift victory at Omaha Beach went terribly wrong and turned into the bloodiest of the Allied invasions.

The D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest amphibious military operation ever mounted. The greatest armada the world had ever seen was assembled to transport the Allied invasion force across the Channel and open the long-awaited second front against Hitler's Third Reich. Of the landings on the five assault beaches, Omaha Beach was the only one ever in doubt. Within moments of the first wave landing a third of the assault troops were casualties. Yet by the end of D-Day the Atlantic Wall had been breached and the US Army's V Corps was firmly entrenched on French soil.

"This is probably the best book ever written about Omaha Beach." --Bill Stone, Stone & Stone Second World War Books "Balkoski's depiction of 'Bloody Omaha' is the literary accompaniment to the white-knuckle Omaha Beach scene that opens Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan." -- John Hillen, New York Post In this unforgettable narrative of D-Day, Joseph Balkoski describes the minute-by-minute combat as it unfolded on Omaha Beach, allowing soldiers to speak for themselves as they recall their attempts to maneuver bombers through heavy cloud cover, the claustrophobic terror aboard transports, and the relentless fire that greeted them on the beach. Equal parts oral history and meticulous reconstruction, Omaha Beach is the closest the modern reader can get to experiencing the Normandy landings firsthand.

An infantry company commander in the U.S. Army's heralded 1st Infantry Division, Capt. Joseph Turner Dawson led his men through some of the most brutal battles of World War II. From the invasion of North Africa in late 1942 through Sicily and the assault on Normandy to the push toward the German frontier late in 1944, his length of service on the frontlines was extraordinary, and his heroism while holding off the Germans on a ridge near Aachen, Germany, is legendary. Based on Dawson's own combat journal, this book focuses on leadership in combat during the greatest human drama of the twentieth century. Dawson is at the heart of the drama as he describes the strain of constant combat and its effect on the combat infantryman. His writings have been edited by the former chief military historian at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Col. Cole C. Kingseed, who succeeds masterfully in capturing the essence of combat leadership through the actions of this citizen-warrior. Although Dawson was an Army officer, the lessons his journal offer cut across service lines to help readers understand what makes a good frontline commander. The book is published in cooperation with the Association of the U. S. Army.

6 juin 1944. Dans l'aube grise, les barges de débarquement, qui transportent les éléments d'assaut de deux divisions U.S., ainsi que des sapeurs du Génie et des Rangers, avancent vers la plage qui leur a été assignée comme objectif. Son nom de code " Omaha Beach ". Epuisés par la traversée et en proie au mal de mer, les troupes d'assaut sont cependant convaincues que les défenses allemandes ont été écrasées par le bombardement naval et aérien. En face, retranchés dans les fortifications côtières qu'ils étaient la veille encore en train d'aménager, des fantassins allemands attendent pourtant que les soldats américains atteignent le rivage pour ouvrir le feu. 6 h 30. Les chalands de la première vague raclent le sable et les rampes s'abaissent. Pour les Allemands, c'est le signal. Sur la plage bientôt appelée " Bloody Omaha ", " Omaha la Sanglante ", ce sera l'enfer... Cet album vous propose de découvrir cette page d'Histoire. La première partie campe les unités des deux adversaires, présente le plan américain et passe en revue de manière détaillée les positions défensives allemandes. Dans la seconde partie, l'ouvrage évoque les débarquements successifs des vagues d'assaut, suit pas à pas la difficile progression des GI's sur la plage sous un déluge de feu, au milieu des obstacles anti-débarquement. Surtout il retrace par les mots et l'image toute la violence et l'horreur des combats...
