The Story Of The Liberation of Europe The invasion of Normandy was not one single battle. Some troops coming ashore met little or no opposition. Others, on different beaches or engaged in special operations, encountered determined resistance which put the whole of the D-Day landings in jeopardy. D-Day: Heroes focuses on the fiercest fighting on D-Day, with the pick of combat footage from archives around the world, film of the battlefields today and vivid, chilling first hand accounts from Normandy veterans. As well as combat on the beaches, D-Day: Heroes features many of the perilous support operations where, despite often terrible losses, Allied troops somehow managed to seize their objectives. It was their heroism and self-sacrifice which, ultimately, made D-Day a success. Engagements featured on this DVD include: # The legendary battle for Pegasus Bridge, fought and won by a single company of the Oxford and Buckinghamshire light infantry..... # The fierce fight to secure Utah Beach and the near disaster at Omaha Beach where American troops were pinned down in the surf by a devastating crossfire and the invasion nearly crumbled..... # The combined parachute and glider assault by the American Airborne Divisions - the largest airborne operation ever mounted - to secure the vital Western flak of the beaches by taking the small market town of St. Mere Eglise....
