Utah Beach


Utah Beach was the codename of D-Day’s westernmost landing beach. Here the U.S. 4th Infantry Division came ashore. The Utah Beach landing was quite successful, partially thanks to the Airborne troops who prevented any significant counterattacks against the landing area.

Utah Beach was de codenaam van het meest westelijk gelegen landingsstrand van D-Day. Hier kwam de Amerikaanse 4e Infanteriedivisie aan land. De landing op Utah Beach was zeer succesvol, mede door de luchtlandingstroepen die voorkwamen dat de Duitsers in de tegenaanval konden gaan.
