D-Day 2019

Rangers assigned to the U.S. Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment rehearse their ascent of the battle worn cliff-face of Pointe du Hoc on the northwestern coast of Normandy, France, on June 4, 2019. During the American assault of Omaha and Utah beaches on June 4, 1944, U.S. Army Rangers scaled the 100-foot cliffs of Pointe du Hoc and seized the German artillery pieces that could have fired on the American landing troops at Omaha and Utah beaches. At a high cost of life, they successfully defended against determined German counterattacks.
