Bloody Omaha includes Intelligence Briefings for both a German Festungskompanie (Fortress Company) from 352 Infanteriedivision and an Assault Company from either 1st or 29th Infantry Division, along with several interesting variations. As with all future battle books, these briefings are specific to this battle in terms of both organization and special rules, although you can also use them as tournament forces if you want to.

The book also includes the Battle for Easy Green, a scenario using these forces in the fight for the Easy Green Beach and the Les Moulins draw in the middle of the Omaha sector. This scenario is a variant of the Hit the Beach mission in D-Day and needs the D-Day book for the amphibious landing rules. Unlike the Utah scenario in D-Day, Easy Green is a real nightmare for the US player. The enemy only have a platoon of infantry, but the bluffs and the anti-tank ditch, keep the tanks on the beach, leaving the infantry to assault the strongpoint pretty much on their own. Playing this scenario, you soon get to see why Battlefront Miniatures call it bloody!

For something a bit different Battlefront Miniatures stuck the Pointe du Hoc scenario in too! This battle saw three ranger companies scaling cliffs to assault a coastal gun battery in classic commando style.
