The factual events of 6 June 1944 are well documented - but what were the personal experiences of those who took part in the largest amphibious invasion in history? This drama-documentary combines the stories of front-line soldiers, French Resistance operatives, war photographer Robert Capa and rival commanders Eisenhower and Rommel with archive footage and interviews to re-create the story of the Normandy landings.
