Item description for GOLD BEACH: Normandy 1944 (Memory 44) by Jean-Pierre Benamou...

Gold Beach was a D-day landing beach that stretched across seven kilometers of sand and dunes, which at low tide spanned almost a kilometer towards the waterline. By June 6th 1944, the German defense troops of Fortress Europe had transformed it into a series of walls and antitank trenches flanked by concrete fortifications protecting formidable guns. The coastal area was flooded and dotted with mines and booby-traps. The beach area extended between the cliff at Saint Come de Fresne' to the west, and the battery at Mont-Fleury to the east. The invasion beach sectors of Item, Jig, King, and Love were located between these two points, through the hamlet of Asnelles to Ver sur Mer (La Rivie're). One hour after H-hour (7:30 am), British troops proceeded inland after a show of force at Mont Fleury and the Commandos' feat of arms at Port en Bessin, two shining moments for the British Army and Navy. Gold Beach was stormed on June 6th 1944 by British soldiers who had fought victoriously in 1942 in the North African desert, and General Montgomery would later hail Gold Beach as the most successful of Normandy's five D-Day beaches.
