||(Two versions of same photo) Smoke from grass fires obscure the bluff on several sectors, notably Dog Red, shown here. The smoke is still visible
when this picture was taken, about 1600. LCT(5)-207, carrying the self-propelled guns of the 58th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, was finally able to make shore
after an attempt at 0600 had failed. Obstacles on this part of Omaha beach were still intact that afternoon.
