Visit Omaha beach, the American Cemetery, the Merville Museum and Pegasus Bridge, where Allied gliders landed on the night of 5-6 June 1944 and after just 10 minutes of combat completely overwhelmed the German position guarding the bascule bridge. It was also here that the Allies suffered their first casualty, when Lieutenant Denholm Brotherridge lost his life in the battle for the bascule bridge, becoming the first of the 4,414 recorded soldiers to die on D-Day. A harsh but unforgettable experience that helps to put the events of history into perspective.
