Black and white war footage as seen on wide screen at ceremony STORYLINE: Veterans walked the shores of Omaha beach at dawn on Sunday, the first in a day of tributes to the men who fought and died for freedom 60 years ago. For many old soldiers, it was an emotional return to the battle zone on the northern coast of France, which became known as "Bloody Omaha" and saw the beginning of the liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany. Some 156-thousand Allied troops landed on the five invasion beaches 60 years ago in a military operation the then British Prime Minister Winston Churchill described as "undoubtedly the most complicated and difficult that has ever taken place". Sixty years later, veterans, politicians and royalty remembered the battle scenes at Omaha Beach, which became the bloodiest of the five landing areas. Soldiers stepped on landmines or, weighed down by heavy gear and weapons, drowned when their landing craft delivered them in too deep water. It marked the beginning of an 80-day campaign to liberate Normandy which involved three (m) million troops and cost the lives of 250-thousand. The Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France on 6 June 1944, is considered the turning point in World War II in Europe. Less than a year later, Adolf Hitler was dead and victory in Europe was proclaimed.
