That finished the fight for Courseulles. Grayson’s courage earned a Military Cross. CHAPTER NINE “Follow me,” Major Charles Dalton had gallantly shouted at 0812 when the LCA ramp dropped. The Queen’s Own Rifles were landing square in the middle of Juno Beach, in front of Bernières-sur-Mer. Charles saw a large two-story house to one side. Then he saw only water. The major plunged to the sea bottom in eight feet of water. Under the weight of his equipment, swimming to the surface was impossible. So Charles held his breath and started walking.

Suddenly something started whacking the steel hull. Fulton realized it was German rifle and machine-gun fire. “Then you’d see a big spout of water come up, and it dawned on me it was artillery fire and this wasn’t going to be a surprise. ” To the east, the Queen’s Own and North Shores led the way to the beach. The Fort Garry Horse DD tanks trailed because of the decision to take them virtually to the sand aboard the LCTs. Charlie Martin realized he could no longer see the thousands of ships out to sea.

He insisted instead that the invasion would succeed. But he remained terribly worried. Churchill was right to be worried. The Germans defending the beaches were badly outnumbered and outgunned. But the Allies could only land small numbers of men in the first assault waves. These troops would be terribly exposed. They would pile out of the LCAs and then have to wade ashore. But first they would have to find their way through a maze of obstacles that extended about 1,200 yards from shore. Farthest out were rows of concrete and wooden poles braced by logs or steel rails.
