Probably most notorious because it was heavily defended, the Nazis had a height advantage (the cliffs), and Allied casualties were the highest there.

Indeed. There's an excellent video on Youtube called "The Fallen of World War Two", which at one point claims that more American soldiers died in one day on Omaha Beach than in all the years of the war in Afghanistan.

Visited all the beaches on 70th anniversary, also went to the cemeteries. I saw pictures before I visited, but only when you're there do you realise the scale of sacrifice. It truly sent shivers through me. Lest we Forget.

For some reason I had "Golden sword" in my head. Didn't realise I was mishearing gold and sword. Only got gold. Also kept trying Juneau because I thought heard that as well and it made sense to me as US city. So close yet so far...
