Omaha, commonly known as Omaha Beach,

was the code name for one of the five sectors of the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944,

during World War II. "Omaha" refers to a section of the coast of Normandy,

France, facing the English Channel 8 kilometers (5 mi) long,

from east of Sainte-Honorine-des-Pertes to west of Vierville-sur-Mer on the right bank of the Douve River estuary and an estimated 150-foot (45 m) tall cliffs.

Landings here were necessary to link the British landings to the east at Gold with the American landing to the west at Utah,

thus providing a continuous lodgement on the Normandy coast of the Bay of the Seine.

Taking Omaha was to be the responsibility of United States Army troops,

with sea transport, mine sweeping, and a naval bombardment force provided predominantly by the United States Navy and Coast Guard,

with contributions from the British, Canadian, and Free French navies.
