Abstract:

A celebration of the D Day spirit. Code-named "Operation Overlord", the Normandy Invasion took the German Army completely by surprise, as British, American, Canadian, and Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword, liberating France and marching towards Berlin and victory in World War II. Remarkable stories of courage and heroism include the acquisition of Pegasus Bridge, the welcome given by the newly liberated French, the brave rangers at Pointe du Hoc, the battle for Omaha Beach, and the Piper Bill Millin, who played his bagpipes waist-deep in water all the way from the landing craft to the shore, then inland through France.
