    Tell us the reason the rule of order is to get off the beach asap, exits or no.

    BTW, every exit in Normandy was heavily defended, and they were footpaths. But please, answer the question.

    the Brits and the Poles and Canadians had an easy time getting off their beaches. our beach next the theirs was a carnal house. and our Ranger beach had a forty foot climb with ropes.
    had the germans gotten those french 155s going, like they tried to, three allied beaches wouldve been destroyed enmass. in fact, any arty on any of the five wouldve decimated all on that beach.

    Why did the Americans shout to get off the beach at Normandy?

    they did not. if you stood up you were dead. direct machinegun fire has a tendency to do that to people who stand up. of the five ( 6 ) eastern beaches, ( the rangers use two ) twenty mikemike was the heaviest incomming on any of them. maybe a few knee mortors. on Iwo you had grazing fifty cal to 308 spigots hitting the beaches.

    Your knowledge of American history must've been taught by the same guy who said Nathan Forrest was led by 65 black shock troops on all his raids from 1861 to 1865.
