Normandy, Utah Beach American sector – France

with No Comments

Utah Beach.

A mighty fleet of battleships, destroyers, mine sweepers and cruisers as well as troop transports went to Normandy. One of the beaches in Nomandy received the code name Utah Beach. Here the operation went almost according to plan. The Germans in this sector had a weak defence and it did not take long before the US Forces came ashore and subsequently broke through the Atlantic Wall. As a result there were not many casualties amongst the Americans and the liberation of Normandy began.
