Step off your Higgins boat and into the surf of Omaha Beach. The artifacts and stories of individual soldiers who participated in the invasion put a human face on the most decisive day of World War II—June 6, 1944. Hear from the men who fought for Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword Beaches. Climb Pointe du Hoc with the Rangers. Fight your way through hedgerow country. And, finally, take a moment to contemplate the ultimate cost of victory.
