The 40th anniversary ceremonies of the Normandy D-Day landings was made a special occasion because it was understood that it would be the last great reunion of its veterans. It was in recognition of this fact that this television documentary special was produced and broadcast by Granada Television, taking advantage of the opportunity that the 40th anniversary reunion gave them to interview those who participated in the operation, while placing all their experiences within the tactical and strategic framework of its grand design and recounting moment by moment the unfolding of events in each sector of its fields of operation. The result is a carefully prepared time capsule for those of us in the here and now and afterwards to know first hand from those who fought there what tragedy and heroism was found there. A priceless historical treasure those who revere World War II history (1984, Color and B&W, 1 Hour 52 Minutes).

D-Day, the largest amphibious landing in history, began in the early-morning hours of June 6, 1944 as Allied forces landed in Normandy on the north coast of France. Operation Overlord took months of planning and involved 1,527,000 soldiers in 47 Allied divisions along with 4,400 ships and landing craft, and 11,000 aircraft. The Germans had about 60 divisions spread along France and the low countries. American forces landed on two western beaches, Utah and Omaha, while British and Canadian troops landed farther east on Gold, Juno and Sword beaches. By the end of the day 150,000 Allied soldiers and their accompanying vehicles had landed with 15,000 killed and wounded.
