Click to EnlargeD-DAY, CODE NAME OVERLORD. -- DVD VIDEO -- It is first light on the 6th of June, 1944, D-Day. On this day, the Allies launched the largest combined land, air and sea operation ever from Southern England to liberate Europe from Hitler and Nazi oppression. Code named Overlord, the entire operation was a tremendous gamble. The element of surprise was paramount and through a tangle of intrigue, the German high command was led to believe the invasion would occur not at Normandy, but at Calais, only twenty miles from England across the narrow Strait of Dover. The largest invasion the world has ever seen is about to begin...

The assault phase of Operation Overlord was a tremendous victory for the Allies. Six beachheads were established and more than 150,000 men and hundreds of tanks landed in Normandy. The Allies had won their foothold on the continent. Soon afterwards, they were celebrating in a liberated Paris. Yet, 80 days of war and its uncertainty lay between the two events.

This DVD documentary tells the compelling story of the Normandy Invasion of the sea, air and land invasion as experienced by the U.S. and Allied Navy, Army and Air Forces, and includes rare color footage from the George Stevens Collection at the Library of Congress
