Synopsis: SIDE ONE: D-DAY ASSAULT ON FORTRESS EUROPE Early in the morning of 6th June 1944, a vast and bizarre armada ploughed steadily against stiff head-winds through the rough waters of the English Channel, heading for the Normandy coast. Amongst the 5,000 vessels were many of the best British and American warships of stupendous collective firepower, as well as ancient battleships and tankers on their last voyage, destined to be sunk to provide breakwaters. Thousands of the craft had been built to make one short journey only; to ferry the invading allied forces, together with their immense diversity of equipment on the last difficult, dangerous stretch from the transports to the shore of enemy-occupied France. It was D-Day. Four years in the planning, two in the organising and one day in the execution, the landing in Normandy was easily the largest and most extraordinary combined military operation ever attempted. It was also a crucial one, had D-Day failed the Western Allies would have found it impossible to launch another operation for at least a year or more and today's map of Europe might have been very different. One of the millions taking part in the landings, Admiral Ramsay, was famous for his dislike of even the slightest exaggeration. As Operation Overlord got under way, he told his officers 'Gentlemen, I am sorry about all the superlatives, today they happen to be true'. Here is that story. SIDE TWO: THE NORMANDY BATTLES After the D-Day landings in June 1944, the Allied troops found themselves up against stiff German defensive positions. As a result of the desperate fighting which followed, the German Army was pushed back towards Paris, and the tide of the war was finally flowing in favour of the Allies. This programme tells the story of the mighty battle for the town of Caen, and of the shambles of 'Operation Goodwood', one of the great British disasters of the Second World War.
