Discover the stories of veterans who took part in the invasion of France on June 6, 1944, and the Battle of Normandy. The true story of this historic battle is told through firsthand accounts and experiences, artifacts from the war, and an intricate exploration of the hallowed battlefield as it sits today.
The invasion will be brought to life through firsthand accounts from veterans describing the conditions of the landing, and how they survived the battle which killed more than 5,000 Americans. Their stories of combat, heroism, and sacrifice will ensure that their memories live on forever. The film will also follow the footsteps of a WWII veteran back to where he was wounded over 75 years ago.
Dozens of historic artifacts will be examined including photographs, medals, helmets, and uniforms to deliver a unique experience for the viewer. Artifacts provide an exciting way for children to learn about the war and gain a better understanding and appreciation for our D-Day veterans and history in general. Stories which have never been told before will come to life in the film.
The film will explore the Normandy battlefield as it is today, and how the beaches remain a sacred and respected area in France. Viewers will also take a journey to the cemeteries of Normandy where thousands of young men are buried. Stories of soldiers who never returned from France and lost their lives in the struggle for freedom and democracy will be brought to life once again.
