How many people died at Omaha Beach?

Answer

An estimated 2,400 Americans from the 1st and 29th Infantry Divisions died in the D-Day invasion on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. The troops were pinned down by the German 352nd Infantry Division, according to About.com, because the German fortifications were undamaged by a pre-invasion bombing that fell inland.

Despite the heavy losses at Omaha Beach, 34,000 troops had been landed there by the end of D-Day, according to History Learning Site. While the total German losses on D-Day are unknown, the D-Day Museum estimates the figure to be between 4,000 and 9,000. In total, over 425,000 troops from the German and Allied forces were either killed, wounded or went missing during Battle of Normandy, according to the D-Day Museum, and between 15,000 and 20,000 French civilians were killed.
