The Omaha Beach Landing was the first mission of the American Campaign of Company of Heroes.
This is the first mission in the game. The player commands forces that are in the first wave of attack on Omaha beach. The objective is to get as many squads to the shore, however those German pillboxes are chewing up squads before they can get very far.
This one's really simple, just select as many squads as you can and send them all up towards the rally point at the shingle. After you get the riflemen up to the rally point, you'll need some engineers to blow the wire so, instead of the riflemen, you'll get many squads of engineers. About halfway through the landing, you'll receive a bonus objective to move a sniper up to the rally point.
Tank traps are good cover for MG fire. So, another strategy is to have two squads selected (one on the left and one on the right) and send them at the same time, to the shingle.
Now you'll have to capture the trenches in order to stop the flow of those Volksgrenadier squads. Use the engineer's satchel charges to destroy German bunkers. Afterwards you must destroy the Flak 88's, by using grenedes, satchel charges, or just by killing the crew. In order to receive the medal for this mission, the player has to capture the left side of the beach landing by destroying the German forces there.
