Omaha East - D-Day 1944

Description

OMAHA BEACH, NORMANDY, FRANCE, 6 June 1944: Less the one section already accounted for (on Easy Red), Company E of the 16th RCT touched down on the western part of Fox Green, the craft badly scattered over a front of nearly 800 yards. The final run-in was not costly, but crossing bands of automatic fire caught most of the craft as the ramps were lowered, and from there on losses were heavy. Most of them incurred in the water, and among men who stopped to drag the wounded ashore. So exhausted and shaken were the assault troops that when they reached the sand, 300 yards from the shingle bank, most of them stopped there and crawled in just ahead of the tide.

The greater number of the company's 105 casualties for D Day were suffered on the beach, in the first stage of assault. Four boat sections of Company E, 116th RCT, came in on the same beach sector and had much the same experience. From 3 of the sections, a total of 60 men reached the shingle bank. The company commander, Capt. Laurence A. Madill, already wounded crossing the beach, was hit twice by machine-gun bullets as he returned to salvage mortar ammunition. His last words were, "Senior non-com, take the men off the beach." The company's sections were separated, and it was some time before any contact was made between them.

Five sections of Company F, 16th RCT, landed on Fox Green scattered all the way from E-3 draw to a point a thousand yards further east. Two sections landed close together in front of the strongpoints defending E3 draw. Mortars as well as machinegun fire got about one-third of the personnel before they made the shingle. Further east, the other three parties fared as badly, only seven men from one craft getting through the fire to the shingle. Two officers survived among Company F's widely separated sections.

ASLComp OMAHA EAST is a massive new addition to CH's D-Day collection that breaks new ground ... and smashes all records by providing three mapsheets to add to the three already provided in OMAHA WEST (aka First Wave at Omaha). Lots of scenarios play on one map, making for ease of play ... while you also receive a monster using all three maps ... plus the ultimate SIX MAP LANDING ... that combines the two titles. There simply has never been anything like it and it is sure to sell out quickly.

ASLComp OMAHA EAST contains:

  • 16 action-packed scenarios from soup to nuts, tournament to the largest monster in the history of the genre, hands down.
  • ALL THE COMBAT COUNTERS NEEDED TO PLAY, over 1000 color die-cut counters with MMCs and SMCs in NEW POSES FOR BOTH AMERICANS AND GERMANS.
  • Color cover sheet
  • Special Rules
  • American Landing Play Aids
  • German Wn Play Aids
  • Commemorative Box
  • The chance to make tactical-level wargame history at your own basement
