BATTLE OF NORMANDY - 85 DAYS IN HELL
1 x 60'
Year of Production
Specially commissioned to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, this remarkable documentary charts how, on 6th June 1944, the biggest military landings in history took place. Since then experts have analysed the planning and preparatory operations of D-Day, recognising this could have determined the Allied victory that day. Whilst history gives the impression it was the end of the war, D-Day was actually the first of 85 long days of the Battle of Normandy.
Featuring never-before seen archive footage of the battle, The Battle of Normandy is the result of over 20 years of research and features interviews with World War II experts who describe the military strategic decisions that allowed this battle to take place, and how Normandy, France and eventually Europe regained their freedom, albeit at great human sacrifice.
