D-Day & Normandy
£6.49  

On June 6th 1944, some 185,000 British troops stormed ashore on Gold and Sword Beaches in Normandy. More landed behind enemy lines in assault gliders to secure vital objectives. 7,000 ships supported the landings, while Allied aircraft flew 14,000 combat sorties overhead. D-Day, the greatest amphibious assault in history, was underway...This is the definitive film history of British forces in action from D-Day to the Normandy Breakout, commissioned especially to mark the historic 60th anniversary of the original D-Day landings. Featuring newly discovered film from the Imperial War Museum archives and never before seen newsreel material from the Movietone archive, it covers all the major British engagements, as well as battles fought by American and Canadian forces.Expert analysis and commentary is provided by Colonel John Hughes Wilson, one of the worlds leading military historians, who provides a Battlefield tour of no less than twenty one significant D-Day locations, from the Beaches to Falaise. British soldiers, sailors and airmen who took part in the campaign provide vivid, first hand accounts of the action, and there is full coverage of both the build up to the invasion and the secret weapons devised to help ensure its success.DVD EXTRAS:1.
