The Battle for Normandy - Omaha Beach, landing phase complete

Below is a photo of the final disposition of the units in the immediate vicinity of Omaha.  I'm sure I broke several rules or at least the intent of some of them, even during the structured landing phase.  Please bear with me.  

Phase 1.  All units except the DD tanks make it to shore.  Thank goodness for drift, or several infantry companies would not have made it.  I had two DD tank units scheduled to come ashore during Phase 1, but none of them did.  Yikes!  During the…
