Omaha: Battle for the Beach depicts the fighting for Omaha Beach and the Normandy countryside behind it on June 6-7th, 1944. The player controls —by moving markers across the map and combating enemy units— the American and German formations that fought in the battle.
The map covers a two-kilometer section of beach and the land behind it, including Charlie, Dog Green, Dog White, and Dog Red beaches. The counters represent infantry platoons (40-60 men), machinegun sections (4-7 men 2 machineguns), tank platoons (4 tanks), and gun batteries (4-6 guns). Each turn represents fifteen minutes to one hour.
