"The Beast of Omaha"
Heinrich Severloh was conscripted into the Germany Army at the age of 19. Two years later on D-Day he was a machine gunner tasked at defending Omaha Beach. This is where he supposedly earned the infamous nickname; in his memoir Severloh claimed to have injured or killed roughly 2,000 American soldiers who were trying to storm the beach.
Severloh recalls using his MG42 and a two Mauser K98’s; alternating between the 3 guns when one would run out of ammo or overheat. His fellow soldiers helping reload the empty guns while he used another. In all Severloh claims to have used 12,000 rounds for his MG42 and about 400 for the two K98’s. U.S and German historians have heavy doubts on his story. Severloh did meet with U.S soldier who was wounded on Omaha but survived; their reunion the basis for a documentary. (GRH)
