In this fascinating documentary, we hear from the soldiers who fought at Omaha, recalling their experiences as they approached the shoreline under intense crossfire by the Germans.
Using CGI graphics, the film recreates and illustrates what happened on D-Day, exploring the weaponry utilized in the initial 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 one 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.
