Five years into World War II, Europe’s future hangs in the balance, as over 34,000 American soldiers start a mission to launch the most important and biggest attack from sea.
Surviving D-Day is a fascinating documentary, interviewing the U.S soldiers who fought at Omaha, recalling their experiences as they approached the shore line under intense cross fire by the Germans. Using CGI graphics the film recreates and illustrates what happened on D-Day, exploring the weaponry utilized in the primary wave of the invasion.
Of the 1450 soldiers to arrive within the initial wave that day, it’s calculable that over one third of those men were casualties within the first hour.
Surviving D-Day diagrammatically details oone of the biggest turning points in modern history, and tells the engrossing story of the brave soldiers that gave their lives to liberate Western Europe.
