Cover-Up at Omaha Beach
- D-Day, the US Rangers, and the Untold Story of Maisy Battery
- By: Gary Sterne
- Narrated by: Brian Holsopple
- Length: 12 hrs and 28 mins
The Rangers’ mission was clear. They were to lead the assault on Omaha Beach and break out inland. Simultaneously, other Ranger units would scale the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc to destroy the ostensibly huge gun battery there and thus protect the invasion fleet from being targeted. But was the Pointe du Hoc mission actually necessary? Why did the Allies plan and execute an attack on a gun battery that they knew in advance contained no field guns? And more importantly, why did they ignore the position at Maisy that did?
