Join Bob Mueller as he presents the American forces' seaborne and airborne invasions of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944. The critical roles of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions who parachuted into France shortly after midnight, and of the 1st, 4th, and 29th Infantry Divisions which landed early that morning are described through the actions of individual soldiers. Clearly drawn maps present the battlefield terrain; period photographs and contemporary photographs compare some of these battle sites then and today.
