Utah Beach

At 6:30 in the morning, the American 4th Infantry Division under General Barton, supported by amphibious tanks, reached the La Madeleine dunes on Sainte-Marie-du-Mont beach. As luck would have it, coastal currents had carried their landing craft two kilometres south of the planned location, where landing would have been a good deal more dangerous. Weakened by air and sea bombardment, German resistance was not up to scratch. The Americans only suffered minor losses, with some fifty dead and around 150 wounded. By the early afternoon, they had joined up with the 101st Airborne.
