D-Day The Normandy Invasion - sixgun - 04-11-2011

WWII DOCU *** June 6, 1944 has gone down in history as D-day, the beginning of the end of World War II. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the Normandy Invasion took the German Army completely by surprise, as American, British, Canadian and 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 like the acquisition of Pegasus bridge, the wondeful welcome given by the newly liberated french, the brave rangers at Ponte du Hoc and the desperate battle for Omaha beach.
