OMAHA BEACH AREA

"When this war's over I'm gonna buy me a map
and find out where I've been."

The Story of GI Joe


They Came This Way: Movements of the 225th in the ETO

   The following maps (work in progress; check back for new maps), annotated to show movements and stopovers of the 225th in the ETO, feature clickable links to zoom in on a particular location:

Omaha Beach Area, Normandy

   The following maps (work in progress; check back for new maps), annotated to show positions occupied by the 225th in the Omaha Beach area, are reproduced from Michelin's reprint of the 1947 map of Normandy, which was issued in 1984 to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of D-Day. The map scale is: 1 centimeter on the map represents 2 kilometers of terrain. NOTE: the 225th officially landed at Omaha on 18 June, but elements were ashore as early as 12 June and 15 June. Some men even landed at Utah after the Channel storm of 19-20 June made unloading at Omaha difficult.
