[edit] Information

D-Day Sacrifice It was the biggest air and naval fleet in history to take off for France to free Europe from Nazi Germany’s clutches. As World War II entered its fifth year of combat, and despite set-backs in Russia, the power of Germany remained so strong that the Anglo American Allies had to recruit 2 million men all ready to sacrifice their lives. From the Battle of Normandy to the Liberation of Paris, tens of thousands of lives were lost; D-Day Sacrifice recounts the story of the D-Day Landings on 6 June 1944 through the testimonies of those who lived it. Comprised entirely of re-mastered and colourised archive footage, much of it never before seen, the remarkable testimonies of famous individuals like Dwight D. Eisenhower and Erwin Rommel are intertwined with those of anonymous soldiers and citizens, such as film director Samuel Fuller and Eisenhower’s chauffeur

[edit] The Landings

It's June 5, 1944, and the largest military invasion fleet in history departs for the northern coast of France in hopes of liberating German-occupied Europe. World War II is entering its fifth year of combat and tension is at its peak. Despite setbacks in Russia, the power of Germany is still so strong that the Anglo-American Allies have enlisted 2 million men, all prepared to sacrifice their lives, to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany's clutches.

[edit] Battle of Normandy

It's June 6, 1944, and the Allies have secured the landing beaches of Normandy. The pivotal battle for the coast is over, but the real mission has just begun. They now have three objectives: join the beaches together, take the city of Caen and, above all else, seize the Port of Cherbourg. The civilians' confidence is renewed when they learn that the Allies are on French ground, but the Allies' advance through Normandy is slower and more difficult than expected.
