Both those familiar with the details of World War II and newcomers to this realm of history are likely to find this film quite fascinating and thorough. Viewers will be shown how the Allies carefully planned their actions ahead of time with great precision. All were fearful that without direct intervention by the Allies on the continent, Hitler would feel free to continue extending his military dominance throughout Europe. General George S. Patton and Major General Omar Bradley, among others, played key roles in the Allies' victorious invasion. Watch war clips and listen to leaders talk about the ingenious plans that were successfully carried out. Find out how the Allies used radar and other devices to transmit misleading information to the Germans to keep the exact location of many of the Allied troops a secret until it was too late to try and thwart the invading forces.
