June 6, 1944: The largest Allied operation of World War II began in Normandy, France.

Audiences of all ages, including new generations, will discover from a new perspective how this landing changed the world. Exploring history, military strategy, science, technology and human values, the film will educate and appeal to all.  Narrated by Tom Brokaw, D-Day: Normandy 1944 pays tribute to those who gave their lives for our freedom…A duty of memory, a duty of gratitude.
