I saw a documentary not long ago about Erwin Rommel (aka the Dessert Fox). It said there that he had fortified Omaha beach 1 month before the D-day because he saw that the beach had the exact shape as a beach in Italy where an invasion was made not long before that time (by the Allies). Can someone please tell me more about this landing? What was it's purpose and how did it turn out? I didn't find any info on the internet. Mabye some of you know.
