One of WWII's largest Allied operatives took place on June 6, 1944, with the invasion of France. This 3-DVD set looks at this fateful and bloody event from all angles with three different documentaries. First, THE BUILD UP looks at the events from the fall of France in 1940 to the beginning efforts to soften German defenses. Next, THE INVASION examines the descension of thousands of Allied soldiers on the beach at Normandy. Finally, THE BREAKOUT is an incisive study of the Allied Forces efforts to fight their way across France and liberate Paris.
