Utah Beach was the westernmost sector of the combined Allied landings on June 6, 1944. The invading troops were American and they were brought ashore by the US and British Navies, as well as being supported by the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions. This foothold on the Contentin Peninsula allowed Allied forces to march on Cherbourg and take the important port near the end of July. They also captured the V-2 rocket base which rained bombs on London.
