Description by Ryko Distribution:
June 6th 1944 has gone down in history as D Day, the beginning of the end of World War II. Code-named "Operation Overlord" the Normandy Invasion took the German Army by surprise, as Allied soldiers from all over the world stormed the beaches of France and began the liberation of Europe.
This documentary not only examines the operation in a strategic context, but also focuses on many smaller scale stories of courage and heroism: The wonderful welcome given by the newly liberated French, the brave rangers at Pointe du Hoc and the desperate battle for "Omaha" beach.
