Omaha Beach today

News has just come in that Jim Gabaree, one of the few surviving American 5th Batallion Rangers, was awarded the French Legion of Honour medal.

5th Rangers successfully attacked the far right flank of Omaha Beach, scaling the cliffs at Vierville and ensuring that the near-failed Allied assault carried on.

John Maslin sent a moving selection of photos taken at Omaha Beach this Summer.
