Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
This program takes the opportunity of D-Day's 50th anniversary to take a long and lingering look back at the events of that fateful day, June 6, 1944. On that day, the Allies made their return to the continent of Europe in the face of fierce and fanatical Nazi resistance. The D-Day landing marked a turning point in the war and the beginning of the end for Hitler's Germany. This program takes viewers to the beaches and tiny towns of northern France to view the hotly contested area.
