WWII D-DAY LANDINGS DVD: In the early hours of June 6th, 1944 Allied forces began the greatest military assault ever attempted. They came to Normandy by both air and sea with one objective: to get a toehold on the continent and from there, begin the long campaign that would result in the liberation of Europe and the end of the Second World War. The assault was conducted in two phases, an airborne attack by 24,000 paratroopers and glider pilots followed by an amphibious landing across Normandy s sandy beaches. Using personal testimonies, we tell the dramatic stories of the men who took part: the British and American paratroopers and glider infantry, men who crewed tanks, infantry soldiers who were deposited on the Normandy beaches by landing craft and RAF crews who took part in the deception plan that convinced Hitler and his generals that Calais was the main target for the assault. The veterans words are illustrated by dramatic archive and colour footage of key locations. By telling their stories in their own words, we get a snap shot of what it was like to be part of the enormous undertaking. (50 min) 

WWII D-DAY LANDINGS LITTLE BOOK: The D-Day landings on June 6th 1944 were part of the largest military operation in history. An airborne assault in Northern France was followed by amphibious landings on five Normandy beaches: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. The Allied invasion was designed to breach the fearsome defences of the Atlantic Wall, push inland to secure towns and villages, and drive German forces south and east. Despite beginning the assault with more than 7,000 ships and nearly 200,000 men, US, British and Canadian forces encountered stern German resistance in the most important engagement of the Second World War, particularly on Omaha Beach where American casualties numbered nearly 3,000. When it seemed as if the Allies had stretched their supply lines and could push no further inland, German resistance crumbled and the war in Western Europe entered the end game. Few events in the history of warfare have captivated public interest, and D-Day remains an inspiring and moving story. This book looks at the landings themselves (Operation Neptune), the broader Operation Overlord and eventual peace in Europe and the Far East.
