We've visited the Normandy beaches a few times but had never visited Omaha beach until this year.
American troops landed on two beaches names Charlie and Dog Green at Vierville-Sur-Mer where this monument provides a poignant reminder.
Either side of Vierville are sheer cliffs, while the beaches were heavily defended.
