Examining how elite soldiers played a crucial part in changing the course of the war. The first episode looks at the British Light Infantry's role ahead of the D-Day landings. They were charged with crash-landing gliders into Northern France and taking hold of two key bridges that were in the hands of the enemy. Failure would have resulted in the largest amphibious assault in history being thrown into jeopardy.
