Despite these preparations, very little went as planned. Ten landing craft, and the soldiers manning them, were lost before they even reached the beach.
Of the nine companies that landed from the first wave, only A Company of the 116th RCT, at Dog Green, and the Rangers to its right, landed where intended.
As soon as the infantry jumped out of the landing vehicles, they found themselves on sandbars 45 to 100 m from the shore. Before reaching the beach itself, they had to wade through the water that separated them, sometimes up to their necks, and then they still had 600 feet or more to go before they made it to shore.
As soon as the boats approached within a few meters of the shore, they received intense fire from automatic weapons and artillery.

This game with Roll and Write mechanics tries to recreate the arrival of US troops on the coast of one of the Omaha beaches. This game contains the necessary sheets so that you can print at home on a home printer without the need for color, you only laminate the sheet of the board, with a couple of dice and erasable markers, you can enjoy this game.

Product Information

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
